The petroleum dealers are demanding the implementation of recommendations by Apoorva Chandra Committee, which has recommended payment of commission on cost-based structure. The committee has also recommended a revision in the commission every six months, based on the costs.
Notably, CIPD has broken its ties with the Federation of All India Petroleum Traders (FAIPT), the umbrella organization of petrol pump dealers in the country. Both have parted their ways due to differences among them on many issues including commission.
There are around 3,300 petrol pumps in Maharashtra and 242 of them are in Mumbai alone. On the sale of petrol, dealers get a commission of 1.9% and on diesel their commission is 1.6%. Dealers are saying that despite increase in the fuel rates the commissions have remained same. They want the commission to be hiked to the tune of 5%.
