More information about the government of Sri Lanka’s plan to register the Fuel Pass in 2022
Sri Lanka’s Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera said on Tuesday that the pilot project for the National Gasoline Pass or fuel ration card will start on July 21 in several places in Colombo.
On Saturday, the Ministry of Power made the National Gasoline Pass available to the public. This will make it easier for people to get fuel on a regular basis and stop hoarding.
Kanchana Wijesekera, the minister of power and energy, said at a press conference that the new fuel ticket will give each driver a week’s worth of gas.
To get gas, cars must register at https://fuelpass.gov.lk/ with the number from the owner’s national identity card (NIC) or passport and the number from the car’s chassis. Each car will have its own QR code.
Please Open The Link to learn how to sign up.
Minister Wijesekera said that by July 19, more than two million people had signed up for the system and received their QR codes.
Wijesekera wrote on Twitter that from July 21-24, the QR Code will be tested in many places in Colombo. The registration process will go on. The QR Quota trial project will start on July 21. The last number on a vehicle’s licence plate will be used to identify it. The QR programme will be used all over the island beginning on July 25.
So, starting July 21, the last number on the licence plate will be used to pay for gas all over the island.
