    Srinagar, Jan 5: The divisional administration in Kashmir has ordered ration-

    issued as “precautionary one” even as stocks are full. 

    “We are not low on stocks. The order is a precautionary, a preventive one to avoid any 

    difficulties which may arise in future.”

    As per the order issued on January 4, the divisional administration has ordered 

    issuing rationing of petrol and diesel besides LPG.

    or diesel), four-wheelers (pri-vate) 10-litres, four-wheelers 

    (Commercial) 20 litres and heavy vehicles/Buses, trucks
