HPSEB staff to oppose power Bill

Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon

HPThe Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Employees Union will support the National Coordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers one-day all-India strike against the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014. The union  termed the proposed bill anti-people. It decided to hold protests and rallies on July 21-23, when the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2014 will come up for discussion in Parliament.

Hira Lal, general secretary of the HPSEB employees association, said the Bill aimed at further splitting power discoms into carriage and content (electricity supply business) to enable profit mongers to enter the supply business in the urban and revenue potential areas without any investment. The Bill would open up the electricity distribution sector for cherry picking by suppliers, forcing the poor and low-end consumers to pay more, he said.
