CPC introduces cap for issuance of kerosene oil


The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) has issued a cap for the supply of kerosene oil, with immediate effect (06).

A circular in this regard was issued by the Marketing Department of CPC.

Accordingly, one individual will be provided only five litres of kerosene oil.

However, those engaged in the fishing industry will be able to obtain the required amount of kerosene upon presentation of a letter issued by the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources when issuing kerosene.

CPC yesterday (05) issued caps for the supply of fuel for vehicles.

Accordingly, the following caps were introduced;

*Motorcycles – Rs.2,000

*Three-wheelers – Rs.3,000

*Cars, vans and jeeps – Rs.8,000

The fuel limit, however, will not be imposed on buses, lorries and other commercial vehicles that require diesel.
