Prang residents seek LPG home delivery
Preng (Kangan), Mar 18: The residents of Prang in Kangan Tehsil and its adjacent areas have urged the officials of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) to start home delivery of LPG cylinders.
“The gas companies including Hindustan Petroleum are providing home delivery to the consumers of the Prang area,” Abdul Hameed Parray Sarpanch of Prang told Greater Kashmir.
He said the IOC vehicle delivering cylinders to households at Kangan doesn’t stop at Prang due to which the consumers are facing immense hardships. “
“The residents of many villages including Lari, Drugtung, Prenpar, Barwulla, Katchnambal, Ari, Check, Goripora, Shodgund, Monugam, Chinar, Chatergul, Baba Reshi, Gujrat and other areas of the Prang have to travel about five to seven kilometers to reach Kangan to get the IOC gas,” Muhammad Amin of Prang said, adding the problems aggravate especially during the winter season.
“We have to spend full day in getting the gas cylinder from Kangan and have to hire the load carrier for ferrying it, for which we have to pay Rs 150 to 200,” the consumers said, adding the cooking gas cylinder reaches to their home at a cost of Rs 600.
The residents said that they brought the matter into the notice of senior officials of IOC many a times. “We apprised the concerned officials about the hardships faced by the consumers and submitted many representations seeking start of the home delivery, but nothing substantial has been done in this regard,” Abdul Rashid Ganaie told Greater Kashmir.
The inhabitants of the area urged the senior functionaries of the IOC to start the home delivery service at an earliest for the benefit of the consumers.
