LIFE WAS lavish for Pune-based Aditi Bhosale Walunj and Chetan Walunj. Chetan’s family owned a few petrol pumps in industrial areas. But they wanted to do something different. They got an idea when they saw pilferage of fuel by employees of industries. They acquired a small tanker to supply to industries. Later, they decided to deliver fuel B2B on an e-commerce platform. “But you could sell diesel only at fuel stations,” says Chetan. “We started chasing the petroleum minister at events. We even stood outside his house for 12-13 hours,” says Aditi. The minister agreed to do a pilot on doorstep fuel delivery. Ratan Tata soon joined as a mentor. Repos Energy did ₹65 crore business in FY22. It has also launched an organic waste-powered mobile electric charging vehicle solution.
