Srinagar: The usage of “crude electric devices” by “unscrupulous” people is causing huge losses of electricity which also leads to interruption in regular power supply, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Vijay Kumar Bidhuri, said in a meeting here, Friday.
According to an official press release, he enjoined upon Deputy Commissioners to sensitise people about disadvantages of usage of crude electronic appliances.
He said that appropriate action should be taken against misuse of electricity, hooking and power theft.
He maintained that to protect from damage to transformers and other costly gadgets at the receiving stations, a campaign must be started to educate the general public about the heavy cost of unethical power consumption.
He also appealed to people to cooperate with the administration in ensuring regular power supply as per the published schedule.
Div Com also reviewed the completion of various projects under different schemes, plans and projects in all districts and impressed upon DCs to achieve given targets for this financial year.
