To meet the ever-increasing demand for gasoline in the city, Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation Limited (CITCO) today opened its sixth gasoline and CNG station in the industrial zone, phase 1, on the road Hallo Majra.
UT Administrator Vice President Singh Badnore dedicated the state-of-the-art Indian Oil Point of Sale (IOCL) to customers. Dharam Pal, UT advisor; Ravi Kant Sharma, mayor of the city; Arun Kumar Gupta, Principal Secretary (home) and President, CITCO; Jasvinder Kaur Sidhu, MD, CITCO; Rubinderjit Singh Brar, Chief Executive Officer, CITCO; SM Vaidya, President, IOCL; Sujoy Choudhury, Executive Director and Head of State, IOCL, Punjab; and other senior officials of the Administration and IOCL were present on occasion.
The point of sale will add significantly to the convenience of residents of surrounding areas by reducing their travel time for fuel needs. During the event, the first composite LPG cylinder was also handed over to the UT administrator by the President of the IOCL.
Currently, CITCO has five gas pumps in the city, including a compressed natural gas (CNG) distribution pump on Madhya Marg in Sector 17.
“With this new addition, we can meet the demand of residents, especially the traffic on the national road towards Delhi, and this will increase our income,” said the general manager of CITCO. Meanwhile, the first 200 customers will receive a free copy of The Tribune each day at the gas station as part of a campaign launched by the English daily.
