The District Collector of Pune on Tuesday instructed all petrol and diesel pumps to stop providing fuel to the vehicles in a bid to reduce their movement on the road in the wake of coronavirus outbreak in the country.
However, the filling of petrol and diesel will be allowed in the vehicles, which are involved in providing essential services in the city.
