Overall power purchase adjustment formula
ONE MORE CONSPIRACY TO LOOT THE PEOPLE OF DELHI BY POWER COMPANIES – VIJENDER GUPTA
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta said here today that one more conspiracy is being hatched by the power companies to loot the people of Delhi. If the Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit remain silent then the power bills of the consumers will be doubled in the coming days. He told that under a well planned conspiracy the power companies have demanded the DERC to implement over all Power Purchase Adjustment formula to loot the consumers.
Protesting against the unjustified power companies demand, Shri Gupta has rejected the argument of the power companies that they have no control over the fluctuation in power purchase. Hence the consumer should be charged for these expenditures. It is unfortunate that even after imposing fuel surcharge at bailout package, the power companies are not satisfied. The power companies have recently succeeded in increasing hike power tariff on the name of fuel charge. Now, the formula considered to be imposed on the consumer will lead to corruption because there is no check on the accounts of power companies.
He further told that it is open secret that during the contract system the private contractors who showed 300 rupees as the purchase price for a wire of 150 rupees will continue. There is already lakh of complaints about fast running meters but the power companies are not accountable for it. The reason is that the Congress Government of Delhi has left the people at the mercy of power companies. BJP President has demanded that this proposal should be rejected. Inview of the interest of the people of Delhi the DERC should not give any new approval.
