Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam recovered Rs. 108.31

INVC,, Chandigarh, The Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam recovered Rs. 108.31 crore  from the non paying consumers upto February during the current fiscal by launching a special recovery campaign. Power supply of 239223 defaulters was disconnected temporarily/ permanently. A spokesman said here today the Nigam snapped electricity supply of 66179  non payers in operation circle Ambala comprising of district Ambala and Panchkula, , 45942  in  operation circle Kurukshetra, 45655  in Yamuna Nagar, 24173 in Panipat, 19732   in Jind, 17662   in Kaithal,  13543  in Karnal, 9664  in Jhajjar, 7837  in Sonepat and 1239 in Rohtak. These non payers had to pay Rs. 170.50  crore  to the Nigam. By recovering Rs. 108.31 crore  from non payers more than 63  percent of the defaulting amount has been recovered. The Nigam has constituted special checking teams to conduct cross checking of permanently disconnected consumer premises. The inter division checking was being conducted to minimize the possibility of pilferage of power by the disconnected consumers. During preliminary checking it was observed that above 25 % of the permanently disconnected consumers had been drawing electricity illegally/ unauthorizedly, which was a cause of concern. Many permanently disconnected consumers had the new connection on the same premises in someone else’s name. This led to loss of revenue to the Nigam. The checking teams have been directed to pay special focus on such consumers. The Nigam would initiate stringent action against the officials who had issued no demand certificates for release of new connections at the defaulting premises, the spokesman added.
