corruption in Nepal Oil Corporation

Posted by Anup Baral | August 5, 2017 : Nepal Oil Corporation (NOC) was established in January 1970 by the Government of Nepal as a state-owned trading company to deal with the import, transportation, storage and distribution of various petroleum products in the country. NOC, headquartered in Kathmandu, has Five Regional Offices and also Branch Offices, Fuel Depots and Aviation Fuel Depots with total storage capacity of 71,622 Kilolitres (KL) and around 600 employees.
The main areas of concern of NOC are fuel conservation, safety, quality and pollution control. In the area of fuel conservation, consumers are more or less conversant with the idea, and follow the guidelines contained therein. In the area of safety measures all possible steps are being taken to educate the people related with petroleum business and in case of the depots of NOC and storage facilities of the retail dealers, it has been mandatory to follow the safety guidelines. With the relatively recent realization of global warming, pollution and its resultant adverse effects on the health of the population, the major area of concern is fuel quality and pollution control. The main area of concern from the perspective of the corporation is that, in spite of the level best efforts on the part of the corporation, a significant level of air pollution has been contributed by vehicular emissions. To safeguard the health of the population, especially that of children, NOC has already made arrangements to supply the unleaded petrol in Nepal and has been controling the adulteration by joining hands with other concerned government bodies and as well consumers forums .

Guide of the month: January 2018

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
