The LPG supply to the city was back to normal on Friday as around 25,000 cylinders were supplied by Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited and 30,000 cylinders by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited. “Since the supplies were normalised,no tankers were required today,” said district supply officer Snehal Barge.

The Collectorate had invoked the Essential Commodities Act 1955 on Thursday as LPG stores were enough only to last for a day. It had requisitioned for seven bulk tankers from Western India Bulk LPG Transporters Association to meet the shortage.

The Western India bulk LPG Transporters Association had gone on strike on Monday evening demanding an increase in transportation fares from the oil marketing companies (OMC’s). The city has a requirement of around 50,000 cylinders each day.
