08 October 2017 Current Affairs: Around 54,000 petrol pumps all over India will go on a day-long strike on October 13 in support of their long-pending demands.

All India Petroleum Dealers Association President Ajay Bansal told that they will go on indefinite strike from October 27, if the demands are not met.

Their Demands are:

1) Implementation of the pending agreement signed with oil marketing companies on November 4, 2016, scrapping unfair penalties imposed under Marketing Discipline Guidelines, and approved but not given dealer margins.

2) The Daily Mechanism has not benefitted the customer and the RO dealer by far and large. The policy needs to be reconsidered.

3) The proposed Home Delivery is riddled with safety issues, which could lead to serious mishaps and hence should be reconsidered.

4) The petroleum products should be brought under GST so that the dream of One Nation, One Tax could be fulfilled.
