It can’t be like that anymore. No need to pay a single rupee extra to the delivery boy. CK Narasimha, Chief General Manager of HPCL Company has issued a statement to this effect. He said that there is no need to pay delivery charges to the delivery boy.

When asked by a person named Robin from the city of Hyderabad through the Right to Information Act, CK Narasimha, the Chief General Manager of HPCL Company, gave the answer to this extent. He said that if anyone asks for additional money, they can comply with the gas agencies. They said action will be taken against the delivery boy on the basis of compliance.
Rs. One lakh fine
