Appeal to public for judicious use of power
JAMMU: Superintending Engineer, Elect M & RE Circle-I, Jammu appealed to the consumers to make judicious use of power during summer months.
He said that using power through illegal means like hooking of power lines or by-passing of meter amounts to theft of electricity and anybody found indulging in such illegal practice shall be booked and penalized as per the J&K Electricity Act-2010 besides attracting disconnection of power of the installation.
Judicious use of Air conditioners and other power consuming gadgets shall reduce overloading of electrical infrastructure which constrains the department to go in for distress power cuts. The cooperation of the public in this regard shall go a long way in helping the department to deliver better services to our consumers.
