Here are some reader’s suggestions for concrete steps and measures the Nagaland Government should take in order to curb fuel adulteration in the state:

•    Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) namely, Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) take action against the erring Retail Outlet dealers as per the provisions of Marketing Discipline Guidelines and Dealership Agreement subsisting between RO dealer and OMC. Further, the Central Government has issued the Motor Spirit and High Speed Diesel (Regulation of Supply, Distribution and Prevention of Malpractices) Order, 2005 under Essential Commodities Act, 1955 which provides for punitive action against malpractices such as adulteration of petroleum products. Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have a system of monitoring and surveillance at the Retail Outlets. If we are to read the passages above, the government has the necessary guidelines in place and the guidelines do not act by itself but only by the machinery put in place, which happens to be the administrative machinery aka permanent executives. We either get rid of these Non Performing Assets (NPA) as their existence is more a disservice than a service, or we start introducing performance clauses to the existence of administrative machinery for their salary's worth. Sanitation workers in our state employed from other states, while furthering mainland caste prejudices even in our region, despite the lack of equipment should be paid more for their sacrifices rather than those overgrown belly dancers in suits.

•    Foremost, the culprits have to be punished by putting them behind the bar with pay huge fine for the damage to public assets (Vehicles/Machinery). The license also has to be cancelled or blacklisted. The people or organization involved has to be publicly exposed in all News Media Platforms. Government has to set up an anti-adulteration committee and taskforce to tackle the menace and also implement anti goonda act.

•    Fuel quality testing has to be done on all ROs by the government on regular basis in supervision with a third party organization

•    Take strict action when caught. This would be the best measure. It is only because they are let loose even after they are caught that they no longer feel scared.

•    Only concrete step is to remove all the present Legislators n give chance to Young and dynamic leaders of Rising People's Party

•    Regular checking and testing of quality at petrol pumps...not only this fuel meters also need to be monitored.

•    Fuel truck can be monitored by placing GPS or camera in the truck like a dash cam.
