JAMMU, May 19: Bharat Petroleum Corporation, LPG Business Unit, today launched 15-day awareness camp for consumer rights protection and customer safety in the usage of LPG cylinders which are found at some places illegally refilled and also unauthorized cook tops are fitted on them.
The Event was launched across Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal and Ladakh by Ranjan Nair (Head, LPG North) and Mainak Mukherjee (State Head, Punjab State Office).
At Jammu LPG Territory, the events were conducted at Bagad Mandi, Channi and Fruit Mandi Narwal with transporters and labour groups. Organized by Bharatgas LPG distributors, the Event was graced by Deputy Controller, Legal Metrology Jammu Jaideep Sambyal, Nipun Sharma (W&M Inspector) and BPCL officials Sandeep Kumar Raina, TM LPG and Naveen Kumar (Manager Sales LPG).
Jaideep Sambyal raised a slogan of ‘Jaan Hai Jahaan Hai’ and made consumers aware about consumer rights in LPG and safety aspects. He said that the illegally filled gas in 5 kg cylinders are not only less by 1-2 kg but highly unsafe and have caused accidents in past.
“Illegally filled gas is also costlier than Bharat Petroleum provided 5 kg cylinder by around Rs 40-50 per kg. So, by using Bharat Petroleum provided Bharatgas cylinder and attached LERC approved cook tops the consumers are saved from gas short filling, ensure safe operation and get affordable pricing,” the BPCL officials informed the gathering.
They further informed that these cylinders are easily available for take away with Bharatgas distributors and what the consumer needs to get it is just an ID Proof.
