SENIOR OFFICIALS of MP Central Region Power Distribution Company (MPCRPDC), Bhopal will monitor power supply and voltage in remotest villages and failure to do so will result in action against the erring officer.

Newly appointed CMD Suraj Shivpuri gave these instructions to district-level field officers during teleconferencing at Mantralaya here today.

Shivpuri directed Executive Engineers to personally check at least two connections per day, to keep a tab on power theft, and submit a checking record regularly.

All faulty and dysfunctional transformers should be repaired to ensure continuous power supply during the rabi season, Shivpuri stated, adding Executive Engineers should check transformers to ensure smooth supply of electricity.

Warning officials not to make lame excuses about technical faults in transformers, the CMD said pretexts like failure of transformers due to stormy weather would not be accepted.

He also issued instructions to provide new connections and meters timely. The meeting reviewed the situation of over loaded transformers as well as new industrial and domestic connections.

Teleconferencing was conducted in association with the Energy department and National Informatics Centre (NIC). Energy Deputy Secretary C S Yadav, MPCRPDC Joint Secretary Manohar Chelani, Chief Engineer G S Kalsi, Superintending Engineer K P Singh and other senior officials were present in the meeting.

MP CENTRAL Region Power Distribution Company (MPCRPDC), Bhopal has completed pre-monsoon maintenance works well in time to ensure uninterrupted power supply during the season.

Company Joint Secretary Manohar Chelani said grievance redressal centres in all four circles of Bhopal had been equipped with necessary infrastructure and required personnel. He added customers can call on central call centre number 12660 to register their complaints.

The company has trimmed branches of trees close to the power lines besides repairing and maintaining HT and LT lines. The power and distribution transformers have also been checked and repaired wherever required, Chelani informed.

Field officials have been instructed to act quickly and respond to power failure complaints in time so that uninterrupted power supply can be ensured during the monsoon.

The company has also directed all field staff to take necessary precautionary measures and use safety equipment while repairing power faults or during routine maintenance in the monsoon season.
