Private vehicles to get fuel from Monday

KATHMANDU: Nepal Oil Corporation said it would distribute fuel to private vehicles from Monday.

The NOC said the fuel would be distributed in a bid to control black marketeering of fuel.

Many private vehicles have not got fuel after Tihar festival, but the traffic congestion has been normal thanks to availability of diesel and petrol in the black market.

The distribution would help discourage black marketing, the fuel monopoly argued.

Motorcycles would get petrol on first four days after Monday while cars and jeeps could refill on next four days.

Similarly, the emergency vehicles would get the fuel regularly.
