Domestic power defaulters in Punjab to get waiver

Domestic power defaulters in Punjab to get waiver

Tribune News Service

Patiala, August 3

Following an approval by the state government, Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) today issued an official circular to waive the “pending arrears till December 31, 2021, and not paid till June 30, 2022”, of electricity bills of all domestic consumers. The PSPCL has claimed that the Punjab Government would compensate it for all such waivers and also reimburse the additional cost of reconnecting the old power connections.

In the run-up to the elections, AAP’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal had promised free electricity up to 300 units in addition to a waiver of pending electricity bills. Last month, the government had claimed that the scheme would be implemented soon and all domestic consumers having pending bills would get the benefit.

The government informed all chief engineers about the bill waiver for domestic consumers using electricity for residential purposes only. The circular said the waiver would exclude all other consumers, including government hospitals, dispensaries, all places of worship, etc., covered under schedule of tariff for domestic supply.
