Consumers suffering from the fault of the electricity department in Deoghar, there is a danger of being deprived of the free electricity scheme


Deoghar News: In Deoghar, the electricity department talks to the people to pay the electricity bill on time, but the department itself is not showing seriousness in generating the bill.

There is a danger of being deprived of 100 units of free electricity scheme

Domestic consumers are in danger of being deprived of the 100 units free electricity scheme by the Jharkhand government. Due to non-preparedness of bills on time, the financial burden on the people is increasing. Consumers not only have to pay huge bills but also have to bear one-time rental charges in one go. In this situation, domestic consumers are being deprived of the benefits of the said scheme.

Worry about disconnection if bill is more than 5000

In case of non-receipt of bill for two-three months, the bill of many consumers can go beyond five thousand rupees at a time. Generally, the electricity department disconnects the connection in case of outstanding bill of more than Rs 5,000. If the bill of some consumers is arrears and after receipt of new bill, the total amount is more than the prescribed criteria, then disconnection should not happen. Along with this, if the bill is high, then people are worried about its payment.

The problem started after non-payment of energy friends
