Hatras. The central government’s Saubhagya program to illuminate the homes of the poor has now also overshadowed fees. 67,000 consumers who have made connections under this scheme have not deposited fees of Rs 80 crore in the past five years. As senior officials tightened the screws on the local officials, city and rural officials have now started monitoring the broken connections. A charge of electricity theft will be filed against those consumers who are found to be consuming electricity even after being switched off.
It is noteworthy that the district’s electricity department owes about Rs 700 crore. Despite their best efforts, the electricity department did not receive the fees. After that, the central government launched the Saubhagya plan to illuminate the homes of the poor. In this scheme, these defaulters have included connections under different names. They also light electricity at a leisurely pace. There are approximately 67,000 consumers who have not paid any electricity bills since 2016. The electricity department owes them about Rs 80 crore. When the cost of electricity rose and the arrears did not come, the officials lost their senses. Under Saubhagya Yojana, these defaulters took over connections from the electricity department.
Now the affected JEs and SDOs in the city, in the countryside and in the cities have been given the responsibility to monitor the connections that were severed in the event of arrears. If a defaulting person steals electricity, orders are also given to file a complaint against him. Superintendent engineer Pawan Kumar Agrawal says the county’s 67,000 consumers have not paid dues since 2016. They have made further connections in Saubhagya Yojana.
