As part of the initiative to create awareness among consumers on quality and quantity checks at the retail outlets, the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) Salem divisional office conducted a ‘check and win’ campaign recently.

The competition was held in all the 384 retail outlets functioning in the districts of Salem, Namakkal, Karur, Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri.

The valediction of the campaign was held at Modern Agencies in the city, when T. Palanikmar, Deputy General Manager (retail sales), explained the various checking methods to the customers.

Under the ‘filter paper test’, the customers can put two drops of petrol from dispensing pump on filter paper. It should evaporate in about two minutes without leaving a stain on the paper, which is available in all the retail outlets. If a stain is left, there is possibility of adulteration.

The customers can check the density and match it with reference density available in the density records. Apparatus (hydrometer and thermometer) for checking are available at the retail outlets. The customers can also verify the accuracy with the help of five litre calibrated measure available at the outlets.

Mr. Palanikumar distributed check and win standees and hoarding to the retail outlets. He also gave away prizes to the customers for checking the quality and quantity at the retail outlet on the occasion.
