New Delhi , Sept. 8

A national programme to blend 5 per cent ethanol with petrol is set to take effect from November 1, according to an official release. The States to be excluded are those in the North East, J&K, Lakshadweep and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister, Mr Murli Deora, has directed oil marketing companies for early implementation of the Ethanol Blended Petrol Programme on a national scale, it said.

The process of procurement of ethanol by the OMCs through national competitive bidding has commenced with OMCs issuing public notice for procurement of indigenous anhydrous ethanol in different States.

OMCs have been given the complete freedom to protect their commercial interests in arriving at workable ethanol pricing to take forward this important programme of blending per cent ethanol with petrol, it added.
