The central government has agreed to allow temporary power connections to the residents living in the restricted zone around the Indian Air Force (IAF) depot in Gurugram.
The Centre, however, has made it clear that the power connections can be allowed temporarily with the condition that it would not give the residents any legal right.
A formal statement in this regard was given by the counsel for the central government before the Punjab and Haryana high court during the hearing of the case related to the encroachment around the IAF ammunition depot in Gurugram.
While hearing Centre’s reply, the HC directed the counsel to file a formal affidavit on behalf of some competent person so that the court can allow the power distribution company, Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam Limited (UHBVNL) to allow temporary connections.
The no objection from the Centre has come in the wake of an application filed by the UHBVNL submitting that company is suffering huge loss because of the illegal “Kundi” connections by the residents around the IAF depot. Read More
