Colombo: Sri Lanka is planning to do away with the rationing of fuel using a QR code ahead of the National New Year, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) announced on Monday.
The CPC said that it plans to stop issuing fuel on limited basis starting from April 10 ahead of the New Year falls on April 13 and 14.
The decision was taken as the Corporation was receiving sufficient amount of fuel and country’s largest oil refinery is in operation producing nearly 50,000 barrels of fuel per day.
“Plans are underway to ensure continuous supply of crude oil for the refinery,” a CPC spokesman said.
Faced by the worst-ever economic crisis since Independence in 1948, the islanders faced severe shortages of fuel halting transportation and power generation.
Sri Lankans had to queue up for days to purchase fuel and over 15 deaths were reported at the fuel queues.
