Oil marketing companies such as Indian Oil Corporation, Bharat Petroleum Corporation and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation will soon opt for the e-commerce way as the central government plans to start home delivery of petrol and diesel.

If everything goes according to plan then consumers can book their fuel delivery online, which would be delivered directly to their doorstep by the oil marketing industries.

This is one step ahead on our roadmap, as it may give consumers an additional benefit of digital transactions. The industries of oil have conducted awareness campaigns for about 35,000 consumers to promote the use of digital transactions since the old high-value notes had to be seized to become a legal tender.

The current government has also launched a MoPNG e-Seva which has been dedicated to the social media grievance redressal platform for oil and gas related grievances, along with the Swachh Petrol Pump application where people could give their feedback on the current tenure status of toilets at fuel stations.

How is the petrol to be delivered?

The services offered to the people will go with the launch of the Mini Petrol Pump that will be delivering petrol and diesel the same way through tankers.

Is the project safe enough!

So this would help people not spend so much time at petrol pumps. A statement by the Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also stated that this project is secure. This project will be verified by the Regional security regulator, Petroleum, and Explosive Security Organisation.

Will petrol & diesel stations close after the implementation of the scheme?

The ministry is yet not made an approval or endorsement on the move to close down fuel stations on Sundays.


Besides saving time and digitising India the scheme would also help avert sudden empty fuel stops in the middle of roads as well as avoid speeding in an attempt to reach the nearest petrol pump and put someone’s life at risk. Imagine petrol being delivered to our houses how amazing would that be, this would be a super awesome change in the history of the Indian nation.
