Balgarden,Karan Nagar traders complain poor power supply
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 10: The business fraternity of Balgarden, Karan Nagar and Batamaloo here today flayed the Power Development Department for providing them with “most haphazard and extremely poor power supply.” The traders said despite being commercially important places, the PDD was resorting to unscheduled and prolonged power cuts that often run into hours together.
“This is quite bizarre that while the entire markets in the areas are metered and we are pay as per the meter reading, the department is cutting the power during the day time causing much inconvenience to us as well as business losses,” they said.
“Despite paying commercial rates for power we are being denied even scheduled power supply by the PDD,” they said.
“We are incurring heavy losses due to this tactic of the department of resorting to regular power cuts,” said a delegation of traders from Balgarden, adding that had it been the case in some other state or country, the department would have been penalized by the government.
They said most of their business is dependent on the electricity. “But unfortunately pesky power cuts have made our business suffer. There are some units who are fully dependent on electricity for their day to day affairs like travel companies, internet centres, computer shops, etc.”
Meanwhile, the traders appealed Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah and other officials concerned to look into the matter.
