New Delhi, Sep 16 (IANS) India’s oil marketing companies will improve their grievance redressal systems by Oct 2 and commission toll-free numbers for filing complaints, it was decided Tuesday at the review meeting called by Petroleum Secretary R.S. Pandey. The meeting, a follow-up of the one chaired by Petroleum Minister Murli Deora Aug 19, was attended by IndianOil Corporation chairman Sarthak Behuria, petroleum ministry additional secretary S.
