Dis­coms to pay 10 times fine ‘falsely’ im­posed on con­sumer for power theft

Consumer Voice - - In The News -

Dis­coms will have to com­pen­sate a con­sumer nearly 10 times the fine they ‘falsely’ im­pose on him for power theft, the city’s power de­part­ment has said. Not­ing a ‘de­lay’, Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal has asked the power de­part­ment to ex­pe­dite the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the no­ti­fi­ca­tion, which was ear­lier is­sued to Delhi Elec­tric­ity Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion (DERC).

Ac­cord­ing to the no­ti­fi­ca­tion, DERC will de­pute se­nior of­fi­cials to give req­ui­site per­mis­sions re­quired to carry out in­spec­tions of dis­coms wher­ever cases of power theft and mis­use are re­ported.
