Saksham-2021 is a national level oil and gas conservation mass awareness campaign by the Petroleum Ministry. “This will encourage others to contribute towards a sustainable future through fuel conservation,” Naveen said.
Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) had collected kmpl (kilometre per litre) performance data of all State Transport Undertakings between October 2018 and September 2019. It had then submitted the data for 23 depots for the contest. On the basis of the performance criteria, the two depots of Odisha were selected.
