After the pilot project rolled out in five cities – Chandigarh, Udaipur, Jamshedpur, Puducherry and Vizag, now the entire country is about to adopt the new system. While the decision has created confusion about the procedure to know the revised pricing, the regulators say there will be various methods to know the pricing.

Apart from that, they will also be able to know the pricing through Indian Oil’s app ‘Fuel@IOC’, toll-free numbers and social media posts. Also, they will be informed about the pricing through SMS as well.
