Bhubaneswar: At a time when the government is aiming to promote more digitisation in all spheres of life, people could very soon have the luxury of buying petrol and diesel on a single click without even going to petrol pump.

According to union minister Dharmendra Pradhan all petroleum products will soon be available on e-commerce platforms. “Using the technological advancements in the IT & Telecom Sector we will soon be starting online home delivery of Diesel & Petrol,” Pradhan tweeted on Wednesday.

Following the demonetisation of high value currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 in November 2016, the union minister had in June this year presented the idea of home delivery of fuel at a meeting of the consultative committee of members of Parliament saying that the move will greatly enhance the digitisation of the sector.
