Petrol pump sealed for irregularities in fuel dispensing machine

Muzaffarnagar: The district administration has sealed a petrol pump here after it found irregularities in one of its fuel dispensing machines, an official said today.

A team led by the District Supply Officer, Madan Yadav, raided the petrol pump yesterday evening.

It was found that one of the fuel dispensing machine at the pump had irregularities, Yadav said.

The raid comes close on the heels of seven petrol pumps being sealed in Lucknow after the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) found an electronic chip being used in fuel dispensing machines to cheat consumers by providing them less fuel than what they were paying for.
