Residents of Shree Vardhman Flora, Sector 90, have filed a complaint with the deputy commissioner against the developer for failing to pay power dues to Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN), despite the fact that they were collected through a pre-paid method.
This, they claim, has forced them to rely on DG sets for the last three days, compounding their financial troubles.
This comes after the discom cut off the housing society’s power supply on Monday due to unpaid electricity bills totalling more than Rs 12 lakh.
The power was restored at 6 p.m. on Thursday after the developer paid the initial payment of Rs 8 lakh with a guarantee to pay the balance by August 30.
The Reason Behind The Power Supply Suspension
“Now we have received a partial payment of Rs 8 lakh with an undertaking from the developer that the entire cash will be deposited by August 30,” said Rahul Sagwan, executive engineer of DHBVN.
We are reconnecting, and if the developer does not reconnect on time, we will be forced to disconnect the power. “We were initially told that the interruption was due to some technical reasons, which the discom will ratify,” said Dhanraj Kedia, a resident.
At What Cost Discom Agreed To Restore Power Supply
However, when the power was not restored for two days, we discovered that the supply had been cut off due to the builder’s failure to pay his bills.
Meanwhile, Sanjay Jagpal, the society’s estate manager, stated that no services have been disrupted because energy is provided via G power backup.
“We deposited the demand draught with the discom, and power has been restored.” “We have already informed the people that we would speak with high management and request that they charge at grid rate for power supplied via DG for the past two days,” he added.
