Can fuel be delivered to the doorstep of the end consumer? Thereby saving him/her time and money waiting in lines or taking that extra u-turn to buy fuel.

What supported the idea was a conducive economic & political environment keen to support entrepreneurship and startups. Various government bodies like Niti Aayog, DIPP, PESO, PSU OMCs, etc., got together to bring about a policy change to facilitate the concept of "doorstep delivery of fuel" under the aegis of MoPNG, led by the visionary Dr. Dharmendra Pradhan, who decided to lead the change himself. The pilot project was launched in March 2018 and culminated into a policy in the Petroleum Rules, 2002 in 2019.
Today, a large number of industrial, commercial, residential, medical, educational, etc. enterprises can order diesel, irrespective of their purchase quantity being large or small, from the comfort of their home or office on an app or a web interface, track their delivery and get diesel delivered to their doorstep for filling their generators. There is no longer a need to send people to the neighborhood pump and fill diesel in jerry cans and transport them in vans/rickshaws or deal with intermediaries who will transport diesel to them in unsafe and unapproved illegal tankers, which in itself is a safety hazard.
The model also has a substantial environmental impact. Imagine the environmental impact of 10 factories in an industrial zone sending their vehicles up and down to the pump for buying diesel, viz. one truck coming to fill all their generators. Early calculations show the saving could be equivalent to 450 gms of CO2 emissions per trip. There is an additional positive environmental impact from using pure, unadulterated fuel. Adulterated fuel has more carbon emissions. Online invoicing reduces paper dependence and saves trees.
