Bonanza for Noida: Pay your power bill on time, get rebate
Residents of Noida are all set to get rebates on timely payment of power bills. They will also get interest on security deposits of their power connections and extended deadlines to get their faulty bills corrected with no penalty levied on them. All this and more were announced by Kripal Singh, adviser (energy) to chief minister Akhilesh Yadav in a meeting on erratic and inflated power bills with the RWA federation on Sunday.
The meeting, held at D R Centre in Sector 58, was also attended by Anil Mittal, director (commercial); A K Gupta chief engineer (commercial); Mukul Singhal, superintending engineer Noida Circle; Raghvender Yadav, executive engineer; and other officials of the UP power department including executive engineers and SDMs.
Office bearers of the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA) sought clarifications on the continued spell of erratic/inflated bills which were presented to the officials. Most of them were corrected on the spot. On incorrect bills an extended time-lag was given (beyond the due date) for their payment. “We were assured of extended time period to correct our wrong bills and also assured that no penalty will levied on residents till the bill gets corrected,” said A N Dhawan, secretary general of FONRWA.
