THREE DIGIT PRICE NOT AVAILABLE ON MACHINE
State-run Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) on Monday (February 15) hiked the retail prices of petrol and diesel prices for the seventh successive day around the country. The Extra Premium Petrol crossed the mark of Rs 100 in Bhopal as it also gave a new tension among the old petrol pumps. Many petrol pumps in Madhya Pradesh’s capital city Bhopal do not have the latest digital fuel machines. Thus, the three-digit price (Rs 100) is unable to display. Therefore, many petrol pumps here have decided to close as a precaution. Owners of petrol pumps here are now updating the machine.
