CPC sets limits on kerosene


The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) has issued a cap for issuing kerosene from Friday (6).

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

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

However, those engaged in fishing can obtain the required amount of kerosene upon presentation of a letter issued by the Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

CPC on Thursday (5) 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.
