Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi has simplified the procedure to apply for electricity connection for all consumers in the capital.
Delhi Power Secretary Sukesh Kumar Jain today said the city government recently advised the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) to make the electricity connection application form simpler and to reduce the number of documents from multiple documents (e.g. proof of ownership, ID proof, test report, architect certificate, address proof, indemnity bond, NOC of owner etc.) to only two irrespective of load and category.
Jain said this has been implemented and now all the consumers seeking electricity connection in Delhi will apply in a revised and much simpler form which requires only two documents to be enclosed.
According to the officer, the step will help in obtaining electricity connection simpler not only for the domestic consumers but also commercial and industrial consumers and thereby help in ease of doing business in the capital.
