Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has called a meeting of discoms on Tuesday to discuss about the compensation for consumers who face power cuts longer than two hours will be a major issue.
The meeting, which will be attended by representatives of all discoms – BRPL, BYPL and Tata Power, will held at 2 pm at Kejriwal’s residence.
Reportedly, the Delhi government has been maintaining that there is no shortage of power in the city. Also, there is a provision for more power if the need arises, however, discoms were not performing routine maintenance.
“Over the last 14-15 years, private discoms have either not spent enough on maintenance or have not carried out good quality maintenance checks. There should not be such a high number of complaints. We have asked power companies to put together quick response teams to redress the complaints,” Delhi Power Minister Satyendra Jain said.
