Power Development Department (PDD) has augmented power distribution system in various areas of south City.
Executive Engineer PDD Division second Rajbagh, MY Baba, said the department has augmented over 30 transformers to higher capacity in various areas including Batamaloo, Chanpora and Rajbagh. "This has improved power supply and voltage in these areas. However, we appeal our valued consumers to judiciously use electricity. This will help to prevent the system from overloading and ensuing smooth power supply," Baba said.
He said in case consumers face any problems they can contact concerned AEEs. Meanwhile, the PDD has started a drive to disconnect lines of defaulters having huge outstandings. "In last few days, we have made hundreds of disconnections especially in south city. People are requested to clear their due immediately to avoid disconnections," PDD officials said.
