Kerosene for Jaffna farmers


Jaffna farmers can now use the fuel card to get kerosene from the Department of Agrarian Services. The Department of Agrarian Services and the Petroleum Corporation collaborated to distribute kerosene under the supervision of Jaffna District Secretary K. Mahesan.

Previously, farmers in the Jaffna district were given fuel cards based on their cultivable acreage for refuelling. Kerosene can be purchased from all petrol stations in the Jaffna District starting tomorrow by presenting the card. The first phase will meet 25 per cent of the kerosene demand among farmers.

Farmers who do not have a fuel card can apply for kerosene at their Divisional Agrarian Services Centre.
