Power Companies Defying Delhi Chief Minister’s Directions

The loot of power companies in Delhi continues. The inflated power bills have still not been rectified by the respective power companies. In fact, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDDL) was punished by DERC for similar reasons.

The way power companies in Delhi are minting money illegally in an unrestricted manner, it shows that they are acting in hand and glove with the Delhi Government. The direction of Delhi’s Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit proves another political promise and gimmick with no actual intentions to act.

According to B.S.Dalal, partner at Perry4Law, “It is evident that power companies in Delhi are not providing the correct facts and figures and the detailed supplied by them is not only self contradictory but also does not make any sense. As a vigilant citizen of India and resident of India, I did what we must do. I lodged a grievance and complaint with the Delhi’s Chief Minister’s office and other governmental officials and agencies and you must also do so.”

So far Delhi’s Chief Minister’s office has not officially responded to the abovementioned complaint. It seems Delhi Government is well committed to support the power companies in their looting exercise.

Till now power companies in Delhi have not shown any sort of inclination to address the concerns of either Delhi residents or Chief Minister’s empty assurances. The truth is that power companies in Delhi are actively and voluntarily defying all ineffective and useless directions of Delhi Chief Minister.

It is high time for Delhi Government to actually take some concrete steps to address the concerns of those from whom it seeks vote during every election.
