The Lanka-Indian Oil Corporation (LIOC) has issued caps for the supply of fuel for vehicles, with immediate effect.
Accordingly, the following caps were introduced;
*Motorcycles – Rs.2,500
*Three-wheelers – Rs.1,500
*Other motor vehicles – Rs.7,000
Last evening, the Cabinet decided that all sheds operated by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) will provide fuel only to essential service vehicles till 10 July, effective from midnight yesterday (27).
LIOC, however, assured that the oil company remains unaffected by these restrictions, and will continue to distribute fuel to all non-essential service vehicles via the ‘token system’.
