According to the single shift formula, petrol bunks in urban areas across the State will be open from 8:30 am and 5:30 pm, while those outside the city limits and on highways will function between 6 pm and 6 am.
The Andhra Pradesh Federation of Petroleum Traders (APFPT) on Saturday reiterated their stand to work in single shift from Monday. Consequently, vehicle owners are likely to jostle for their share as the bunks in the City will shut shop at 6 pm.
However, the decision has not gone down well with vehicle owners. “We are yet to recover from the three bandh calls in the last few weeks. The petrol dealers and the government should sit and resolve the matter through talks,”
