The guideline states that petrol pumps of the border d istricts will be checked daily and that there is no black marketing of fuel. Trains going towards India will also be investigated. Due to Corona, there is a ban on movement of trains on the Indo-Nepal border. But trucks are being allowed to go beyond this border to supply essential goods.
Ever since the prices of petrol diesel have increased in India, there have been reports that oil is being secretly brought from Nepal and sold in India. The trucks which are going to Nepal with goods from India go to Nepal after emptying their tank and return to full Kara. Apart from this, people are engaged in black marketing of petrol in many other ways.
