The National Fuel Pass (NFP) will be topped up at midnight every Tuesday effective from today (March 08), Minister of Power & Energy Kanchana Wijesekera says.

Accordingly, all accounts have been topped up this morning, the lawmaker said taking to Twitter.

Earlier, the National Fuel Pass was topped up weekly, at midnight every Sunday.

The changes were made in a bid to reduce the distribution cost incurred for operating the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) and the Ceylon Petroleum Storage Terminals Limited (CPSTL) on weekends, Minister Wijesekera explained in his tweet.

However, the weekly fuel quota provided at present will remain unchanged, he noted.
