Haryana to allot sites for filling stations through auctions

- Posted on 16 February 2018

Chandigarh, Feb 16 (IANS) To bring transparency in the process of allotment of sites for vehicle filling stations, the Haryana government has decided that these will be allotted only through auction.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here on Friday.
Under the new rules, the sites for vehicle filling stations, including petrol pumps, CNG filling stations and electric vehicle charging stations, would be allotted only through open auctions.
The Chief Minister said that though currently petrol pump sites are allotted to the petroleum companies instead of individuals, yet the decision to allot sites for petrol pumps, CNG filling stations and electric vehicle charging stations only through the auction process would make the entire allotment process more transparent.
Khattar also directed the HSVP to make all its 50 services online to facilitate people and ensure that they need not make frequent visits to offices to get their work done.

Our practice so far has been to be non-conformist rather than flowing with the tide. We know this is not the easy path but then it has always been so. It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
