Superior Kerosene Oil
Superior Kerosene Oil is one of the Commodities under the Public Distribution System. In order to ensure the availability of this Commodity to the Consumers at affordable prices, Government of India makes allocation to the State for distribution to the general Consumers through P.D.S. regularly. The Superior Kerosene Oil under P.D.S. is Blue - dyed in Colour. This is done in order to differentiate the P.D.S. Kerosene from the Open Market Kerosene which is white in colour and much higher in prices and thus help in checking the sale of P.D.S. Kerosene in the Open Market. The present Monthly allocation received from Government of India for the Quarter January, 2014 - March, 2014 is 6,492 K.Ls.
