To create awareness among the public about the need for judicious use and conservation of petroleum products and help protect environment, the oil industry under the aegis of the ministry of petroleum and natural gas and the Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) will organize oil and gas conservation fortnight this month.
This year, ‘SAKSHAM 2017’ (Sanrakshan Kshamta Mahotsav) is being observed by the oil industry across the country from January 16 to February 15. Also, mass awareness campaigns will be organized by oil companies in Punjab during the fortnight.
Various activities with the theme ‘Indhan sanrakshan kee zimmedaari, jan gan kee bagheedaari’ have been planned for housewives, schoolchildren, drivers, mechanics, industrial and agricultural users as well as general public.
Governor of Punjab and UT administrator VP Singh Badnore inaugurated ‘SAKSHAM- 2017’ at a function organized by the oil industry at Tagore Theatre.
The governor appreciated the efforts of oil and gas companies in spreading the message of conservation of petroleum products. He further stressed upon the need for conservation of natural resources and thereby the environment to ensure a better future for the coming generations.
