Petroleum minister Dharmendra Pradhan launched this scheme. 


"In the line with the vision for a Digital India, the missed call facility will play a crucial role in making LPG more easily accessible to the consumers. The Petroleum Ministry has always strived to improve customer convenience and this facility by IndianOil will play a crucial role in making LPG more easily accessible," he said.

This also marks more utilisation of Digital India push, which the Prime Minister so eagerly wants in order to make lives of citizens better. 

Apart from it, the minister also launched IndianOil's premium 100 octane petrol, XP100. 

"India is part of an exclusive club of countries globally where petrol with 100 or higher-Octane number is sold. XP100 has reiterated our commitment for providing better energy solutions to all. XP100 has been developed indigenously and is in line with the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative and our PM's Energy Vision," said Pradhan.

"XP100 is an ultra-modern, ultra-premium product designed to thrill your senses. It is the finest grade of petrol to give your vehicle higher power and performance and give you a delightful drive. The availability of XP100 in Bhubaneshwar is part of our promise to ensure diverse energy solutions in all parts of the country," said Indian Oil Chairman, as reported by a popular website.
