Petrol/diesel supply expected to get normal following strike call-off by transporters on Tuesday night
The newly enacted Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita mandates penalties of Rs 7 lakh and a 10-year imprisonment in case of a hit-and-run accident.
With truck drivers calling off their strike on Tuesday night after assurances from the Central government that the new law would be implemented only after due consultation with the transporter community, the fuel supply returned to normal at many of the refuelling stations on Wednesday morning.
A Juhu-based petrol pump owner told Autocar Professional that the refuelling tankers started arriving at night. "There is no issue now," he said.
However, the supply has still not been restored at a few other petrol pumps, as it will take time before tankers start reaching them. For instance, the staffers of another petrol pump station near Chinchpokli informed our sister publication, Autocar, that fuel delivery is expected to begin by 2 p.m.
Truck and bus drivers nationwide have been on a three-day protest since Monday, against a recent central government law that has a provision for hit-and-run cases.
The newly enacted Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita mandates penalties of Rs 7 lakh and a 10-year imprisonment in case of a hit-and-run accident. The earlier law under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) had provisions for imprisonment of two years. The transporters allege that the new law, which is yet to be implemented, will end up becoming a tool for harassing them and may increase corruption.
