Fuel distribution declared an essential service

desalThe fuel distribution has been declared an essential service from midnight yesterday by a gazette notification and the government informs all the employees related to fuel distribution to immediately report for work.


When an essential service situation is declared, those who are not reporting to the service are considered as people who have left their jobs.

In addition, the government informs the bowsers can collect fuel from stores as the government has already restored the fuel distribution.
