• KTC ties up with IOC for high speed diesel supplies

    Kadamba Transport Corporation (KTC) has entered into a long-term agreement with Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), on Thursday, for high speed diesel supplies in Goa. This association is a first-of-its-kind in the country, where IOC has tied up with a government body, said corporation chairman and Vasco MLA Carlos Almeida.

    With this agreement, IOC will be introducing automation at the KTC depots. IOC will provide tags and readers on all KTC buses and dispensing units, which will ensure fuelling of authorized vehicles only.

    KTC chairperson Carlos Almeida said, “If we have to sustain ourselves, we cannot just depend on revenue. We have to control our expenditure and IOC’s offer to help us has come as a huge blessing.” Almeida said that KTC has sent a proposal to the chief minister to start its own petrol pump at Margao.

    Senior divisional consumer sales manager, Pune divisional officer, Zubeen Garg, said, “Automation will have immense benefits, such as no misuse or loss of fuel, real time information on fleet’s fuel utilization, alerts on irregular behaviour and abnormal fuel consumption, no leakage, better safety, etc”. The project is estimated to cost 1 crore, which will be borne by IOC. Luis Aparicio Authentic Jersey
