Demand For Petrol Pump at Havelock

Port Blair, Dec. 16: President, PCC Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma has requested the Lt. Governor for immediate installation of a petrol pump at Havelock. Sharma said that Havelock being one of the most popular tourist spot of these islands and tourist flow has been increased considerably. As a result number of two wheelers and four wheelers have also been increased, apart from those being used by the Government offices and residents.

Due to non availability of Petrol and diesel in time, the vehicle owners find themselves hapless and so is the case with tourists also. This situation, not only hampers the earnings of the tour operators but also causes inconvenience to the residents of Havelock and the tourists also.
