 Days after the Uttar Pradesh police detected that some fuel outlets were tampering with the fuel calibration system, oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that all fuel stations in the Uttar Pradesh will be re-examined.

Random surprise checks will also be conducted all across the country at fuel stations.
 
He said that those dealers violating the Marketing Discipline Guidelines (MDG) will also face strict action.
 
The raids were carried out at 11 petrol pumps out on specific information regarding tampering with fuel calibration by use of electronic chips in Lucknow. Of these, electronic chips were found at nine fuel stations, three of which belong to IndianOil Corporation (IOCL) and the other six belong to Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL).
