Head of the Tabalong Industry and Trade Agency (Disperindag) Husin Ansyari said the use of fuel cards is to ensure the equal distribution of 3 kg LPG in the region.
"The technical direction for the use of the card is stipulated in the Regent's Regulation No. 20 of 2021 and will be disseminated to the public," he explained.
Furthermore, the agency verifies the data on the 3 kg LPG fuel card recipients to be right on target.
