Mumbai: Petrol and diesel stations across Maharashtra have threatened to shut down from August 1 if the state government does not withdraw the "no helmet-no fuel" rule for two-wheelers.

"For starters, we shall stop picking up or stocking petrol/diesel at the 4,500 pumps in the state from August 1, when the new rule comes into effect," Federation of All Maharashtra Petrol Dealers Association (FAMPEDA) President Uday Lodh told IANS.

The decision was taken at a meeting of all the 25 member associations from the 35 districts in the state. 

Besides, the FAMPEDA will move the Bombay High Court shortly to get the rule struck down on various counts, Lodh added.
