To provide a one-time opportunity to defaulting consumers, including government departments with running or disconnected supply, to get their default amounts settled, the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has launched the ‘one-time settlement’ (OTS) scheme.
Except for agriculture power (AP) or tubewell connections, all other categories of consumers will be eligible for the OTS. The scheme introduced by a commercial circular (32/2019 dated June 13, 2019) will remain open for six months (till December 12, 2019).
