BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd have come out with an innovative scheme to provide Tatkal electricity connections for the purpose of pujas, pandals and marriages.
Want a temporary electricity connection during the festive time and don’t know where to get it from? Here is some good news for you. In a bid to cater to the massive demand of power during the upcoming festive season and enhance the festive mood in the city, power distribution companies BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) have come out with an innovative scheme to provide Tatkal electricity connections for the purpose of pujas, pandals and marriages, among others. Under this scheme, a person seeking a temporary electricity connection can get the connection the same day he applies for it, while it normally takes 3 to 5 days to get a temporary power connection.
For getting a ‘tatkal’ electricity connection, all you are required to do is to contact BSES’ call centre numbers — 39999707 (BRPL) and 39999808 (BYPL) – or visit the customer care centre at the division office and complete simple formalities. You can also apply and make payment for the temporary electricity connection online on BSES’ website – www.bsesdelhi.com.
In a press release issued a few days back, BSES announced that as the incidence of power theft also increases during the festival season, their teams will be on high alert during this time to catch such transgressions. “We will be relying heavily on analytics to catch the power thieves. Consumers are requested to take legal ‘temporary’ connections for all their celebrations. A default on this front can not only be expensive, but also an embarrassing affair,” it said.
To ensure reliable power supply during the festive season, BSES discoms have also undertaken several measures, including putting its operations and maintenance teams on high alert. If someone has any complaint regarding no supply of electricity, then one can register one’s complaint by calling the 24x 7 call centre Nos 39999707 for BRPL and 39999808 for BYPL or through the BSES Mobile App.
