The Ministry of Power and Energy conveyed its appreciation to the country’s leading technology entities, Dialog Axiata PLC, Millennium IT ESP and ICTA as the facilitators of the National Fuel Pass system. Recently, at an event, the Ministry recognized the three entities for their invaluable and gratuitous contribution and expertise extended towards the development of the platform and the successful implementation of the allocation-based fuel distribution system.
Since implementation, the National Fuel Pass platform has been successfully adopted by 93% of fuel stations across the country, with over 11 million transactions to date. The National Fuel Pass, which was introduced to provide the public with a convenient and easily accessible solution to obtain fuel and facilitate an allocation-based fuel distribution method, has also surpassed 6 million vehicle registrations to-date.
Dialog and Millennium IT ESP will continue to support the National Fuel Pass platform free of charge over the next three years and will closely work with the Ministry of Power and Energy and ICTA to introduce additional functionality to meet the requirements of special segments. In addition to providing a sustainable allocation-based fuel distribution method to Sri Lankans, the successful implementation of the National Fuel Pass platform contributed to significant national savings, where the monthly expenditure on fuel imports has been reduced from USD 500 Million to USD 230 Million.
