The first-of-its-kind service was started by Indian Oil, back in March this year. The company had started the services in Pune after receiving the approval of, the Petrol and Explosives Safety Organisation (PESO).

The services of fuel delivery have been limited to diesel as they are easier to handle, as compared to petrol. Also, most fleet organisations run on diesel fuel, hence making it more beneficial for the oil companies as well.
