Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera says the fuel ration system is expected to be operational from the first week of July as an experiment.
That is why we propose to set up a ration system as an experiment from the first week of July. At that time I saw how one shed was registered as a misinterpretation and how to refuel when we went elsewhere. The nearest filling station will be registered and the number of liters given to you in a week – for example, if you are given 100 liters, you can get at least 60 liters out of that 100 liters from that registered filling station, so that you can buy the remaining 40 liters from any other filling station in the country. Discussions are still going on and we have not yet formulated that methodology. So it will take us two or three weeks to comeup with this. ”
Minister Kanchana Wijesekera stated this addressing a media briefing held at the Ministry of Energy yesterday (16).
