A delegation of Federation of Industrial and Commercial Organisation (FICO) under the presidentship of Gurmeet Singh Kular met Rashpal Singh,Chief Engineer of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL),Central Zone. They gave him a memorandum regarding the problems faced by the industries.
The industrialists reminded PSPCL chief engineer of their pending demands. Kular said that Gobind feeder in Janta Nagar is 9 km long. Any fault or breakdown disrupts the working of the industry. This is a long-pending demand of the industry,but PSPCL has not bifurcated the feeder due to which industrialists have to face power cuts. He said whenever a truck hits one or the other pole in this 9-km stretch,the entire area goes powerless for hours together.
Besides,the industrialists asked the chief engineer to implement night tariff discount on large supply connections on a monthly basis.
They complained of unscheduled power cuts in mixed land use areas and stated that the pending power connections should be released. They also objected to advance credit deposit energy bills.
