KV ONLINE, Published date : 12, October 2017

NEW DELHI: The Federation of All India Petroleum Traders (FAIPT) has called off the proposed strike on 13 October against the strict guidelines issued by the authorities to the petrol pump dealers.

"The director marketing of the three oil companies had appealed to us not to go on strike and so we are withdrawing the strike on their appeal," said Sukhminderpal Singh Grewal National Secretary & Spokesperson, Federation of All India Petroleum Traders (FAIPT).

Grewal said that various associations of petrol pump dealers had called the 24-hour strike against new Marketing Discipline Guidelines which impose stringent penalties for short-selling, manual mode without authorisation, non-provision of clean toilet and not paying minimum wages to employees.

Grewal said that the United Petroleum Front, an umbrella organisation for the Federation of All-India Petroleum Traders, the All-India Petroleum Dealers Association and the Consortium of Indian Petroleum Dealers, had also threatened indefinite stoppage of purchase and sale operations from October 27.

Petrol pump dealers on Wednesday called off their proposed day-long strike on Friday after state-owned oil firms warned them of strict action, including cancelling their contracts.
