Mumbai: The Maharashtra Government today assured the Legislative Assembly that it will take stringent measures to stop black-marketing of kerosene oil.

Replying to a debate during the Question Hour about black-marketing of kerosene in Pune, Ahmednagar, Buldhana and Sangli districts, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Anil Deshmukh said the government will cancel the license of PDS shops who have been reprimanded twice earlier.

Admitting that black-marketing of kerosene is rampant in the state, he promised severe action against the guilty.

Deshmukh said a new technology is being developed which will help to track the black-marketeers.

The device will monitor the kerosene tankers right from the time they are filled at the stations to the last stop, he said.
