THE LAST month of 2005 proved to be fruitful for KESCo in terms of revenue realisation. The power company was able to realise about Rs 40 crore as revenue from its 4.5 lakh consumers in the December month of the preceding year.
This was 14.14 per cent more than the revenue realised by the power company in the same month in 2004. Of the total revenue realised from the three circles, circle-II topped the list as far as amount of realisation was concerned. To be precise, circle-II, comprising of four divisions, a revenue of Rs 15.44 crore was realised by the KESCo officials.
Similarly, from circle-I, comprising of five divisions, a total revenue of Rs 9.96 crore was realised. However, from circle-III, which is the biggest circle and comprises of six divisions, only Rs 9.88 crore could be realised by the KESCo officials. Apart from this, Rs 3.20 crore was paid by the Duncan Industries Limited (DIL), as power dues to KESCo while automobile manufacturers LML paid Rs 83 lakh as power dues.
The circle-II, which is the smallest, registered a growth of 10.23 per cent in revenue realisation last month as compared to the same period in 2004. Of the four divisions, Dada Nagar put up the best show with realisation of Rs 8.58 crore from the division alone. Though, the division boasts off having one of the biggest industrial area to add to its performance.
In the other divisions, a revenue of Rs 1.71 crore was realised from Sarvodaya Nagar division, Rs 1.01 crore was realised from Ratanpur division and from the commercial hub, Gumti, Rs 4.12 crore was realised.
Ratanpur and Gumti divisions have not fared well when compared to the performance in 2004.
Similarly, the performance of circle-III, which is the biggest and comprises six divisions, was poor, as the overall revenue realised was 7.03 per cent less than the revenue realised in December 2004.
A revenue of Rs 2.91 crore was realised from the Jajmau division, Rs 1.99 crore was realised from Harrisganj division, while Rs 87 lakh could be realised from Kidwai Nagar division, Rs 1.59 crore was realised from Govind Nagar, Rs 2.13 crore was realised from Naubasta and only Rs 37 lakh could be realised from the World Bank Barra division.
In circle-I, a revenue of Rs 1.48 crore was realised from the electricity house division by the KESCo officials, Rs 2.52 crore was realised from Phoolbagh division, Rs 2.18 crore from Nawabganj division, Rs 2.08 crore from Kalyanpur division and Rs 1.69 crore from Zareeb Chowki division.
There was overall increase of 1.56 per cent in revenue realisation from circle-I in December 2005 in comparison to the same period in 2004.
However, the performance of Nawabganj and Zareeb Chowki divisions was not up to mark as compared to the revenue realised from these divisions in December 2004.
Managing Director of KESCo Sudhir Garg said emphasis would be laid on increasing the revenue of the company. As compared to the last year, performance of the company had improved remarkably, he added.
