We studied the consumer behavior, their fueling patterns, their needs and decided to approach the oil marketing companies to let us lease their retail outlets and use them as a platform to conduct campaigns Our proposal was cemented when our campaigns were lapped up by customers, fuel sales increased and it helped omcs reduce carbon foot prints and helped them in earning CER ie carbon earned revenues The Journey to our first campaign Started in Mangalore with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited. Trust from large MNCs and Corporate giants in a start up like SAMMS by offering us free products for sampling at the retail outlets and also getting excellent branding in return for their products helped us gain a small foot hold in the Industry. The campaign titled “Scratch n win” guaranteed a prize on every scratch card. Over 27,00,000 cards meant 27 lac gifts at 175 petrol outlets covering Mangalore and union territories of Mahe gave us an insight into customer needs How we became Vendors Our first order was a one off case. We had to go through the grind and through strong willpower, corporate ethics, transparent policy in all transactions and our principles and work culture went a long way in being registered with all the Oil Marketing Companies giving us excellent edge and paving way by working for all competetors at the same time. No oil marketing company complained about our working with a competetor. It in fact provided us with more scope to work with others at the same time as we had better understanding of the retail outlets OMC structure in India Between BPCL, HPCL, IOCL, Essar, Reliance and Shell we have approx 35,000 petrol stations in India Among these : India has approx 35000 Petrol stations.

The Punjab state of India has approx 1000 nos of Petrol Stations or Retail Outlets apart from an equal number in North East states A lot of Auto LPG Stations and CNG stations have been planned due to high crude prices which are also coming up M/s Reliance Industries Ltd, M/s Essar Oil /Essar Retail, M/s Shell India and M/s ONGC have also opened Petrol Stations in India. The Oil stations opened by M/s Reliance and M/s Essar Oil have been closed on date because of wide Price differential between the fuelcost at state run companies stations and the privately owned stations. Shell currently has 74 petrol stations in India and are adding more Potential Essar has 1278 petrol stations in India which are supplied with petrol and diesel from its 280,000 barrels per day (45,000 m3/d) refinery in Vadinar, Gujarat. M/s Indraprastha Gas Limited has started exclusive CNG fuel stations in India particularly in Delhi, capital city of India.
