CAG report raised the question of the Energy Energy Corporation’s , not to recover 132 crore arrears suffers major loss due to overdraction


The Power Corporation Questions have been raised on non-recovery of 132 crore arrears. The attribution of corporation is attributed to loss of 240 crore rupees in the form of dream line loss. The report said that UPCL did not receive surcharge of Rs 132.58 crore from 4429 consumers till March 2017. The outstanding bill amount has increased from Rs 1353.30 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 1420.47 crore in 2016-17. This caused additional burden on UPCL.

With no timely connection to consumers, the penalty of Rs 6.52 crore was imposed on UPCL. Between 2014-15 and 2016-17, 6337 electricity connections were given after fixed time. UERC imposed a fine of Rs 2.5 crore on this. The deficiencies in the past have now been largely removed. Power connections are being given on time. Bad meters are being changed over time. Connection was given to 800 consumers without security for up to March 2017. This caused a loss of 2.41 crore. Which is a direct violation of the UERC rules. Disturbances in the arrangement of meter reading, lack of adequate system of MRI investigation of connections of high tension consumers, did not get complete investigation of the disturbances

The government has clarified the situation on the question raised in the report of the CAG on the construction of a personal household toilet in 132 gram panchayats in the state along the river Ganga, under Namami Ganga. Director Namami Gange Dr. Rajeev Langer has said that the baseline survey of 132 Gram Panchayats situated on the bank of river Ganga has been done on the basis of population of 2012. The ODF has been declared on this basis.
