GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 22: The Power Development Department (PDD) has found a novel way of curbing alleged power pilferage. The department has stopped power supply to a colony in Nishat, accusing its residents of energy theft.
PDD authorities have threatened to initiate similar action in other areas wherefrom any power pilferage is reported.
On Wednesday, the PDD stopped power supply to Wani Mohalla, Nishat accusing the residents of power theft.
An official handout from the Power Controller Kashmir said: “Two transformer sub-stations have been disconnected completely as a step towards plugging of power pilferage.”
It said the PDD has come down heavily on “defaulting consumers imposing fines and even disconnecting transformer sub-stations, plunging entire areas into darkness.”
“The latest such enforcement was exhibited at Wani Mohalla, Brain where tampering of meters, hooking of LT Lines and other stealing methods were seen to be rampant,” the handout said.
The handout said the supply wouldn’t be restored till the accused pay the penalties.
