Crackdown against power theft coming? This is what Discoms have been ordered to do
The power ministry has now added a new condition for the financial support. The condition says, to get financial support from the central government agencies the Discoms will have to submit plan to reduce power theft and AT&C losses. Those who fail to submit the plan will not get any financial support from the Centre. The same will happen with the Discoms whose plans are not liked by the central agencies.
The government is also working on a new strategy to provide electricity for 24 hours. For this purpose, the strategy will be implemented area wise instead of across the country at once. Image source: Pixabay
