For uninterrupted power, Koker Bazar shopkeepers seek metering
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Aug 17: Irked at the erratic power supply to this marketplace in heart of the City, the shopkeepers at Korker Bazar have sought metering of the area.
A delegation of shopkeepers complained that the power supply remains cut for most part of the day adding that it affects their business.
“We often have to cut a sorry figure before the customers when the power supply goes off in this congested area,” the traders said.
They said if the Power Development Department can’t provide a “decent power supply” in this busy commercial area, it should get the electric meters installed.
“But our condition to metering is that it should be guarantee of uninterrupted power supply,” the traders said.
They appealed the Chief Engineer PDD to look into the matter on priority basis.
“But by the time the metering is done, we should be provided uninterrupted power supply keeping in mind the business activities in the area,” the shopkeepers said.
