Process of Interdistrict Claims
The Petroleum Equalisation Fund (Management) Board introduced the Inter-District Scheme upon realizing that some products movement to certain parts of the country did not qualify for reimbursement under the bridge scheme despite the additional transportation costs incurred by marketers who move their products across depot districts under 450 kilometers but without full bridging support.
This scheme is a cross-breed created to facilitate movement of products form one district depot to another to ensure availability of products in areas of scarcity. The level of Inter-district movements has increased so rapidly as a result of shortage in available products.
