After the success of pilot programmes in five metro cities, Oil Minister M Veerappa Moily today allowed the sale of 5-kg cooking gas (LPG) cylinders at petrol pumps across the country. The scheme, launched on October 5, allowed petrol pumps owned and operated by oil companies in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru to sell the 5-kg cylinders. Company owned and operated outlets make up for 3 per cent of the 47,000 petrol pumps in the country. Now, Moily has permitted the sale of these smaller cylinders at all petrol pumps across the country, official sources said.
