Power discom BSES today launched a ‘tatkal’ scheme to provide temporary electricity connections within a day to community events such as pujas and marriages during the festive season.
A BSES functionary said the ‘tatkal’ scheme aims at smoothly catering to the usually heavy demand witnessed every festive season.
“Under the scheme, a consumer will be able to get a temporary connection the same day of applying and completing the commercial formalities. All a consumer has to do is contact BSES call centre numbers 39999707 (BRPL) and 39999808 (BYPL),” the company said.
Usually, it takes around three-five days to get a temporary connection, it said.
Tatakal applications are also available online at www.bsesdelhi.com or at the customer care centre at the company’s division office.
Announcing the scheme, a BSES spokesperson said, “Our entire machinery is geared up to meet the rush.”
