The Ministry of Power & Energy today introduced the National Fuel Pass allowing the general public to purchase a guaranteed quota of fuel per week.
Accordingly, one vehicle can be registered under one National Identity Card, Passport, or Business Registration Number. Registrations are open via fuelpass.gov.lk website.
“A QR code will be allocated to each vehicle following the registration and verification of the chassis number and other details. Once the registration is done it will take us about 3 or 4 days for us to determine what the quota is going to be. Each vehicle category will be given a guaranteed weekly quota,” Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said.
“The members of the public can obtain fuel twice a week according to the last digit of the number plate, using the QR code assigned to them. But these will coming into effect only after the ministry announces the date it to be implemented. Once we announced the date CPC and LIOC both will follow QR mechanism to issue fuel.”
