While the demand for electricity is increasing, the infrastructure is being set up for it. However, the lack of recovery of electricity bills creates financial difficulties for the supply of energy without problems. This is the current status of MSEDCL. Therefore, there is no way out without paying the electricity bill, said Ajit Pawar, Deputy Chief Minister and Chairman of the District Electricity Distribution Control Committee. Pawar also called on the town representatives to explain to citizens the need to pay their electricity bills.
The meeting of the District Electricity Distribution Control Committee was held in Pune on Saturday. Ajit Pawar was speaking at the time. Pawar reviewed the power system and infrastructure work underway in the district. He said that financial discipline is very important in the electricity sector. The demand for electricity is increasing day by day. Infrastructure systems are being configured for this. However, if electricity bills are not recovered, there will be financial difficulties in expanding and enabling systems, as well as supplying power without problems. MSEDCL has a similar situation today. Therefore, there is no way out without paying electricity bills for smooth power supply and necessary power supply.
The state government has granted a concession of 50 percent on the original arrears, including interest, the exemption of the size of the agricultural pump connection policy delay. Therefore, farmers have a great opportunity to get rid of arrears. At the same time, after paying arrears and electricity bills, contingency funds accumulate in districts and gram panchayats. He said that work is being done to set up all the plants from the substations to the new connections.
