Indian Oil, Kerala has achieved for the first time in the oil industry facilities for accepting cashless payments at all its retail outlets. The cashless facility covers debit/ credit card acceptance, e-wallet acceptance and UPI acceptance.

Moreover, the company’s Irumpanam Terminal in Kochi is the first oil terminal in the industry to ensure 100 per cent payment of toll charges through the cashless route. This has been achieved by affixing RFID tags on all its tank trucks. Irumpanam Terminal has also ensured payment of wages to all its contractors for security, housekeeping and electrical needs through the electronic mode.

Indian Oil Kerala has also introduced a facility to accept cashless payments at all its canteens in Kerala, namely at Irumpanam Terminal, Kochi Bottling Plant, Kollam Bottling Plant and Kozhikode Bottling Plant. Payment of toll charges through RFID tags at IndianOil’s Feroke Depot at Kozhikode has been done for 80 per cent of its tank trucks. The balance is expected to be completed by January 2, a press release said.
