KATHMANDU: The Nepal Oil Corporation has made some proposals on ways to reduce consumption of petroleum products. Accordingly, it has proposed a quota system in fuel to be provided to two-wheelers and four-wheelers.

The Corporation, which has been bearing huge losses in the sales of petroleum products, proposed that the two-wheelers be provided only up to 5 litres and 20 litres for four-wheelers at a time.

Furthermore, the state-owned fuel utility, also proposed that the vehicles ply on the road on the basis of odd and even number plates except for those relating to essential services and public services. Another proposal is to announce a vehicle-free public holiday every Saturday in major cities, according to Corporation’s spokesperson Binit Mani Upadhyay.

Proposals also include installing charging stations in the national highways and providing charge facilities for major cities for electric vehicles (EV) free of cost to promote the usage of EVs.

Determining suitable space for parking and for providing free charging facilities for both private and public electric vehicles is also one of the proposals put forward by the Corporation to cut down on the increasing utility of petroleum products.

The Corporation calls for encouraging walking on short routes instead of using vehicles for brief travels and operating vehicles used for ferrying goods in the optimal capacity of the vehicles among others. (RSS)
