GPS to monitor kerosene tankers

The movement of kerosene tankers from storage tanks to wholesalers in sub-divisions in India will now be monitored through GPS to avoid any pilferage or diversion of fuel to the black market. It has been observed that maximum diversion and adulteration of kerosene takes place during transportation, and if it is monitored through GPS the driver would be answerable for any unnecessary stops or diversion from the designated route. By March this year, the supply of kerosene to over 500 sub-divisions would be monitored through GPS to keep a check on the movement of tankers and avoid any diversion from the specified route to retail outlets. On completion of the pilot project, the NCAER (National Council for Applied Economic Research) would conduct a feasibility study and the project could subsequently spread to almost all 6,000 sub-divisions.
