Nov. 17, 2019

Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah launched the first Winter-Grade Diesel outlet for the Ladakh region through Video conferencing.

It will help to address the problem faced by people due to the loss of fluidity in Diesel fuel during extreme winter conditions.

The winter-grade diesel has been developed by the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) to address the problem of loss of fuel during extreme winter conditions.

The winter grade diesel produced by Panipat Refinery for the first time has a pour point of – 33 degrees Celsius and does not lose its fluidity function even in the extreme winter weather of the region unlike the normal grade of Diesel which becomes exceedingly difficult to utilize.
