Srinagar: Jammu & Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party has welcomed the decision taken by the Jammu and Kashmir Government in extending the benefits of Amnesty scheme for PDD defaulters which has given a big respite to thousands of people who had got inflated electricity bills.

Chief spokesperson of Jammu and Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party Sunil Sethi in a press release said that the huge amount of arrears on the amount of unpaid electricity bills were mainly containing the component of the penalty and interest. 

The Amnesty Scheme which was given by the government earlier could not be availed by thousands of people in Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory because of COVID-19. The decision taken by the government now of extending the benefits and creating the provision for payment by installments is a welcome step.

He asserted that it was a long pending demand of the affected person and was pursued by Jammu and Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party leadership under the able guidance of President of Jammu and Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party unit Ravinder Raina who requested the Lieutenant Governor in this regard and number of delegations/ deputations of the party had also met the administration.

Sunil Sethi also noted with gratitude the decision taken by the LG administration in acknowledgment of the assertions and efforts made by the Bharatiya Janata Party in this regard.

He said that the party is committed to picking up all the causes of the public so that the public is largely benefitted because of transparent and responsive government.
