You’ve heard of shoes for Ladakh or even specific clothes for this ardous region. What’s more, you also have special tyres developed for such regions as well as snow chains. Now, Indian Oil Corporation Limited or IOCL has developed a new grade of diesel specifically for the Leh-Ladakh region.
IOCL says that this fuel meets the BIS requirements as well as is BS-VI in nature. There is also five per cent of bio diesel mixed with this. The fuel was developed and certified a few days ago. This was done at the company’s Panipat refinery.
The Panipat marketing complex has already flagged off the first consignment to the Leh and Ladakh region. In future, dispatches will be sent from the Jalandhar POL. There is no information if the fuel will be sold at the current rate of Rs 69.37 or will be Rs 2-3 costlier. Read More
