Be alert of fraud at petrol pumps.
It is often seen that when we go to a petrol pump to fill oil, the pump employee immediately asks us to check the zero. Many times such cases come to light, where the employee starts filling the oil without getting the zero check done. In case of not paying attention, the person causes harm to himself. These days, a large number of cases of fraud at petrol pumps are coming to light. This problem has become so big that its voice has reached the Parliament of the country. This is why the parliamentary committee has given its suggestion for its solution. Let us understand some things about taking precautions with suggestions.
This is the government's plan
Customers are being cheated at petrol pumps. To protect consumer interests, the parliamentary committee has suggested petrol pumps to display the quantity of fuel correctly on the display screen. The committee found that despite all the reforms, customers are facing many challenges like accurate measurements, tampering and fraud, lack of regular inspection and supply chain etc. To solve these challenges, central and state agencies will have to work together.
Complaint/suggestion booklets are available at all petrol pumps for consumers to raise their complaints regarding facilities/services/or any other issue. The committee appreciated the consumer grievance redressal system in retail shops, but also said that it is mandatory to protect consumer rights in every possible way.

protect yourself like this
While filling petrol or diesel at the petrol pump, it is very important not only to check the zero but also to check the density. Density shows how pure or original the fuel is. The density of fuel available at petrol pumps should be within the limits set by the government. If the density is more or less than the prescribed limit, it means that the fuel has been adulterated.
Check density like this
The density of petrol should be between 730 to 800 kilograms per cubic meter. If the density is less than 730 kilograms per cubic meter, it means that the fuel has been adulterated with water or something else. In this way your pocket can be robbed. Apart from this, such petrol can harm your car's engine.
The density of diesel should be between 830 to 900 kilograms per cubic meter. If the fuel density is outside this limit then understand that the oil has been adulterated. If you buy such diesel, not only will your money be wasted, but there will also be a risk of the engine of the vehicle malfunctioning.
