The government will import 14.90 lakh tonnes of fuel oil from six countries, including 90,000 tonnes of diesel from India, for the first half of the year (January -June period).

A virtual meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Public Purchase, presided over by finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal, on Wednesday approved the import.

After the meeting, Cabinet Division Additional Secretary Md Shamsul Arefin said the purchase will be done on a G2G (Government to Government) agreement via state-owned firms.

The purchase will cost the government $98,04,57,928 (Tk 8,417.23 crore), which includes premium and reference price.

The import of 90,000 tonnes of diesel from India’s Numaligarh Refinery Limited will be supplied to Parbatipur depot by rail wagon. This will cost the government $5,98,94,000 (Tk 512.46 crore).
