Members of Confederation of Indian Petroleum Dealers (CIPD) on Saturday announced that from Monday, the petrol pump operators will operate only a single shift from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm, with a lunch break between 1 pm and 2 pm. The members said that it was the only way to cut costs.

The CIPD has decided to implement the single-shift operation to demand a hike in dealer’s commission and implementation of the Apurva Chandra panel report.

The ever increasing price of petrol and diesel and high cost of petrol pump operation with erosion of dealer margin has rendered the business unviable, the CIPD said.
