“A web based e-billing module christened as `ATF DIP or the Aviation
Turbine Fuel Digital Issue and Payment’ has been developed for the speedy accounting and clearance of Aviation Fuel bills of Oil PSUs,” IAF said in a statement.
During the formal launch, the CAS highlighted that this was a milestone achievement for the IAF and complimented all stake holders, especially CGDA and Chairman of Indian Oil for their whole hearted association with the IAF in completing the project within a short span of time.
He also complimented the PSU for their commitment and unstinted support in ensuring robust supply chain management of Aviation Fuel, especially at the high altitude locations and during natural calamities.
The Indian Oil Corporation was specially lauded for their initiative in developing new designs for Bulk Petroleum Installation and Rubberised Fuel
Tanks for ATF supplies at Advance Landing Grounds (ALGs)/Helipads to support various contingencies.
