DERC asked to prepare guidelines for raids on consumers: Jain
Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday said that the government has asked the state’s power regulatory body to prepare detailed guidelines for electricity companies for raiding suspected consumers’ residence.
Responding to several complaints of MLAs that power companies raid consumers late in the night and early in the morning, Jain said the government has got to know about this issue.
“Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has been asked to prepare guidelines for power companies regarding schedule of raids on the residence of suspected consumers involved in wrongdoings,” Jain told the House.
AAP MLA Anil Kumar Bajpai moved a Calling Attention Motion towards installation of electricity meters.
Bajpai said that government should allow people to install their own electricity meters.
Jain said that there is already a provision under which anyone can install own electricity meters, adding that most people don’t know about this rule.
