In a letter to the East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner, FKJGP assistant general secretary Reginald Thabah said many domestic gas distributors/agencies charge domestic gas cylinder more than the rate provided by the Indian oil company.

"So therefore we urge you to kindly send the officers in charge to check and investigate the matter and if found in such cases, the district administration should take stern action against the dealer," Thabah said.

He also warned, "If your office is taking this matter seriously we have no other option, otherwise our organization will perform the checking by itself."

Thabah also requested the deputy commissioner to inform or pre- notice the rate of domestic gas refuelling every month through electronic or print media so as to enable the public to know the exact rate of the refuelling cylinder.
