Haryana starts scheme for power defaulters

The Haryana government has started a new scheme for defaulters who have not cleared their pending electricity dues since 2005.

Under the scheme, which will end on December 31, the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) is giving relaxation to consumers falling under 20kW domestic (DS) and up to 5kW non-domestic categories. Pending bills prior to 2005 have been waived off in view of the provisions of the waiver scheme.

A spokesman of the DHBVN said the scheme would also be applicable for settlement of theft cases, provided the consumer deposits 50% of the assessed amount without surcharge and the compounding amount in full and withdraws the court case, if any.

The consumers whose cases are at present in any judicial forum on account of billing disputes will not be covered under this scheme. However, if the consumer withdraws the case, he will be eligible to take benefits of the scheme.
