HPEA urged  power ministry that E Bill should not be rushed without detailed discussion

Haryana Power Engineers Association has urged the power ministry that Electricity (Amendment) Bill should not be rushed through without detailed discussion with engineers and employees.

K D Bansal President of association said that the Association has submitted its comments on the draft Electricity (Amendment) bill to the power ministry opposing the complete privatization of power distribution.

The proposed changes suggest abolition of cross subsidy in three years, Regulatory Commissions will have to follow the tariff policy of government of India and complete privatization of power distribution system. All these changes will increase the tariff for middle class and BPL consumers.

V K Gupta Spokesperson AIPEF said that the changes proposed in the Electricity Act, 2003 are a matter of serious concern as this will concentrate all powers in the hands of central government and will eventually lead to complete privatization of power distribution in India.

K K Malik General Secretary said that the Association is opposed to privatization in any sector whether it is power or transport or any other services. The Association supports the ongoing strike of transport sector. The association urges the government to avoid path of confrontation and start negotiations with workers of transportation department..
