In a democratic India, all have their say and the common man is the only one who has nothing to say as no one cares to listen to his voice.
How many of you have seen the receipt of the LPG refill you took this month. The amount mentioned on the receipt should be Rs.413.
And how much did you eventually pay the delivery man, we guess more than that for sure. Normally Rs.420. Are we Correct?
When asked why that extra Rs.7 the delivery man said that, he had to get the cylinders from Mazgaon and that cost is not added hence we need to pay Rs.420.
The Govt. of India says “Jago Grahak Jago” and its own oil marketing companies dont follow it.
According to law one should not pay more than Rs.413 in this particular case. The house wifes say that, as they dont have exact change they tend to give 415, but this time the man said that, you will have to pay Rs.420 nothing less. Sometimes even the delivery men threaten to take back the cylinder if the entire amount is not paid (420).
Just calculate this LOOT. Rs.7 per cylinder. If we assume atleast 10,000 cylinders are sold each day that makes it a whopping Rs.70,000 per day.(this is just an assumption and we are not sure of the exact figure)
Now our question where does this Rs.70,000 go?
If you say I will complain etc, he will ask “Cylinder chiaye ya nahi jaldi bolo, mere pass faltu time nahi hai”.
The whole country is fighting against corruption, but whats this who will fight this?
The government had enough powers to initiate action against erring LPG distributors, including cancellation of their agency in such cases. But who will do it?
The LPG distributor, even if he hears to you this time, the next time you want to book a refill he will harass you.
If you complain to the oil marketing companies, a standard reply will come, “No one is authorized to collect more money than the administered price. Now that you have brought this to our notice we will look into it”.
I know each one of you has paid Rs.420 but could not raise your voice, nor could we. But may be if all come together some one might hear you.
