COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lankans in Anuradharapura have stepped up to help the ailing Ceylon Petroleum Corporation which has been suffering losses for many years, especially even after a price hike on Tuesday (24).

A group of Sri Lankans were seen placing tills at filling stations to collect the rupee loss from every litre of 92 Octane Petrol.

Sri Lanka’s Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera told reporters that even after the massive price revision on Tuesday (24) morning the CPC incurs a rupee loss for a litre of 92 octane petrol and 60 cents for every litre of Auto Diesel.

The money collected in these tills are to be sent to the Minister from the local post office via a money-order.
