UP POLICE RAIDED PETROL PUMP ILLEGAL BUSINESS BY USING CHIP.
FEW BLAMES PUMP OWNERS EXPOSED BY POLICE DUE TO NON PAYMENT OF BRIBE IN ILLEGAL BUSINESS!
Petrol pumps install a chip inside the fuel dispensing machine, which is designed to reduce the fuel output by nearly five to ten per cent.The chip is attached to a wire, which sets the limit through a remote control. So, if you are buying one-litre of petrol, the machine will release only 940 ml.Such chips cost around Rs 3,000 a piece.The STF suspects that the chips have been sold to a large number of pumps. As per STF estimate, a petrol pump using this chip earns an undue profit of around Rs 14 lakh per month.
