KATHMANDU, Jan 12: Petroleum dealers have unilaterally announced to raise the prices of petroleum products by 50 paisa per liter from Thursday, expressing dissatisfaction over the “apathy” shown by Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) to revise the commission rate of the dealers.
Most gas stations in Kathmandu Valley are located in densely populated areas. A school building might stand right next to or just a few meters from a petrol station. We see shops and residential houses lying adjacent to petrol pumps. This is not how it ought to be legally and practically but this is how it has been for many years.
