LPG dealers call off proposed strike
New Delhi: Cooking gas (LPG) dealers Monday night called off their proposed indefinite strike after oil companies set up a panel to look into their grievances.
The All India LPG Distributors Federation and Federation of LPG Distributors of India had jointly given a strike call from Tuesday to protest against disciplinary actions being initiated against them in cases like short-supply.
The strike was called off after it was agreed in talks between the associations and the oil companies to form a joint panel to address their grievances.
All India LPG Distributors Federation general secretary Chandra Prakash said the committee, which will have members from dealers and oil companies, will submit its report by March 31.
The dealers are opposed to Marketing Discipline Guidelines 2014 which imposes heavy financial penalties and terminate distributorship for certain repeat offence.
