Consumer body takes up cudgels against elec dept on load notice

13 Sep 2018 06:43 PM

GOACAN has criticized the electricity department’s advertisement asking consumers to finalise their electricity load within a month

Or if not then would be treated as power thieves. 

 On Wednesday the Electricity department had released a public notice asking consumers to assess their eg load and apply for excess load within 30 days.

The advertisement by the chief electrical engineer Neelkant Reddy puts the blame of the power supply failures on increase of load use by consumers along the coastal belt resulting in overloading and tripping of associated supply lines and transformers
