How to Register a Petrol  Pump/ Station in Nepal?

The Nepal Oil Corporation grants permission for petrol pumps to be registered in Nepal. The Nepal Oil Corporation grants permission for petrol pump operation in accordance with the Nepal Oil Corporation Petroleum Product Sale Regulation 2018. A notice for the registration of petrol pumps was issued when this regulation was issued. According to current regulations, a public notice for petrol pump registration is published every three years in the month of Baisakh.

The Nepal Oil Corporation has classified petrol pump operations into several categories. While classifying the petrol pump, the seller has been classified as follows based on the selling area of petroleum products, the area of the selling point and the infrastructure available at the selling point.

(a) Petrol pump sample (Namuna) Sample pump seller/vendor

(b) A simple seller

(c)  Petrol/ gasoline seller

(D) A well-stocked/Packed seller (Packed seller means a seller who sells diesel in drums)

(e) Kerosene seller

Publish a Registration Notice

Every three years, Nepal Oil Corporation will issue a public notice in the month of Baisakh for the appointment of salespersons for the retail distribution of petroleum products based on the location of the retail sale and the seller’s classification. A petrol pump cannot be registered at any time. A notification for the registration of petrol pumps is issued every three years. An application for registration is not submitted until the notification is published.

However, the Nepali government, the state government, the local level, or an organized organization wholly or partially owned by it, or those operating from the government body’s employee welfare fund, can operate Namuna Petrol pump at any time. Similarly, no notification is required when appointing packaged sellers in kerosene and remote areas.
