Power consumers and activists have described the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL)’s pledge of energy connections within 24 hours as an eyewash.
“What energy minister Chandrakant Bawankule has promised is a lie. The listeners might be amazed with the announcement. But there is a hidden ‘if’ to the announcement and that is the pre-condition that the infrastructure is already in place. This is happening even today in city areas” said Vilas Deole, secretary of the Nashik Zilla Grahak Panchayat and a former MSEDCL employee.
MSEDCL officers, however, are not ready for consumer activists’ theory. They do not have anything different to add to the announcement. “We release the connections for power on the same day an individual or a professional house pays for meter connection.” an officer said.
