PDD plans to outsource installation of metering project

within three years,” the documents reveal.
A senior official told KNS that the meters procured in the past had developed defects which necessitated replacement of the meters. “While the 2019 has been set up the deadline for installation of the meters but many existing ones have also become obsolete and government is also considering how to replace them in a phased manner,” he said.
He said the installation of meters was to reduce the pilferage of power in transmission and distribution (T&D) process but has been stopped in some areas due to protests.
“The installation of metering would reduce the power pilferage and people will get 24-hour power supply,” he said.
He said the implementation of R-APDRP scheme will facilitate purchase of meters which would help in meeting its targets.
Commissioner Secretary PDD Dheeraj Gupta said the installation of metering was an ongoing process to ensure electricity is consumed judiciously. “We are hopeful to complete the installation process within the scheduled time,” he said.
