Due to disruptions in the road and train access to Tripura through Assam, the state administration has imposed limitations on the sale of petrol and diesel in the state.
As the flood situation in Assam continues to deteriorate, the deluge’s consequences have begun to be felt in neighboring Tripura.
However, Tripura is already experiencing a fuel crisis as a result of the three-day suspension of rail and road connectivity with Tripura through the Barak Valley.
Meanwhile, the Tripura civil supply department has announced fuel restrictions, which began on 16th May, Tuesday, night.
Limitation of sale of petrol and diesel sparks widespread concern in Tripura
Furthermore, the Tripura government’s decision has sparked widespread concern in the state.
According to a Tripura government directive, retail establishments must sell fuel at Rs 1000 per day for four-wheelers, Rs 300 per day for three-wheelers, and Rs 200 per day for two-wheelers until further notice.
In Agartala city, long lines of vehicles could be spotted outside petrol outlets. Similar incidents have been reported in various parts of Tripura.
“Until now, we have a supply that can let us get through this.” Retailers have been directed to limit the sale of petrol and diesel based on the remaining fuel stock,” Tripura food and civil supplies director TK Das said on Wednesday.
In addition, he said, “The situation would soon return to normal.”
