Kashmir Power Development Corporation Limited (KPDCL) disconnected at least 450 electricity connections for not paying pending electricity dues in northern district of Bandipora.

An official told a local news agency, Kashmir news observer (KNO), that more than 450 electricity connections were disconnected for the last few days in the district due to non-payment of bills and more action will be taken in coming days as well.

He further said that consumers falling under sub division Bandipora who have not paid any power dues for the last several years will face similar action in coming days.

Earlier, the government has already announced the amnesty scheme on pending electric bills as it provides a huge opportunity to the defaulters. However, at the same time it was conveyed that once the scheme expires whosoever failed to pay the bill would face action warranted under law.

Notably, last week the KPDCL has warned of strict action against defaulters for not paying pending electricity dues in old town area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha had said that electricity won’t be given to people without paying for it and those who won’t pay bills for power won’t get the electricity. (KNO)
