Coupon system to obtain fuel

A coupon system will be introduced from today (20) for people to obtain petrol, diesel, kerosene oil and cooking gas, Batticaloa Government Agent K. Karunagaran said.

The Government Agent was speaking to the media at his office yesterday. He said that the 14 secretarial divisions in the Batticaloa district have been issued with coupons of different colours which will be distributed to every grama niladhari division.

One member of a family can make use of this coupon. This system is to be implemented today (20).

One of the reasons for the shortage of fuel is that families are collecting and storing fuel in their houses, Karunagaran said. The public is advised not to hoard fuel in order to give everyone a chance of obtaining fuel, Karunagaran added.
