Dear Dealer Friends,
The Commission of Retail Outlets was increased as well the commission of LPG Distributors.
You can find both of the orders in the following links.
From the above orders, as per the above order 1, the LPG Distributors received an ad hoc commission before finalization of the commission from July 2009 after formation of commission revision committee of LPG Distributors.
As per the above order 2, the Dealers received an enhancement of commission effective from 1.7.2011.
I found some interesting statistics from the websites of MOPNG (Petroleum Ministry) & MORTH (Transport Ministry) websites and made some interpretations. All information is from sites and all interpretations are mine.
The websites are
The interpretations are as follows:
Total number of LPG Distributors inIndiais 9366
Total number of Retail outlets in the country is 34948.
Total Number of Domestic LPG customers in India is 10.56 crores
Total number Vehicles inIndiais 11.50 Crore Vehicles.
On an average, there are 11278 Domestic LPG connections (permanent customers) to an LPG distributor.
On an average, there are only 3290 motor vehicle (non-permanent) customers to a Retail outlet.
In which two wheeler are of the majority -71.70 % of the total number of registered motor vehicles are two wheelers.
The LPG Distributors’ commission on 14.2 kg Domestic LPG cylinder
is RS 25.83/cylinder which works out to an average commission of 6.55 %.
The Dealer commission is Rs1.49/ Ltr for MS and Rs 0.91/Ltr for HSD which works out to an average commission of 2.15 %
The above factors are self explanatory. I present these in addition to the representation to the committee which is available in the following link.
