Having 24 hours electric power in your home is your right
The new rules set by Electricity(Rights of Consumers) provide rights of consumers and obligations of distribution licences, release of new connection and modification in existing connection, metering arrangement, billing and payment, among others. An automatic compensation mechanism will be put in place. It will include no supply to a consumer beyond a particular duration and certain number of interruptions in supply, which will be specified by the regulatory commission. The distribution licencee shall supply power to all consumers. However, the commission may specify lower hours of categories of consumers like agriculture.
