Chandigarh, Dec 21 (UNI) The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has decided to give the facility of getting converted those horticulture tubewells and other low tension industrial connections to agriculture category which are practically being used for agriculture purpose up to January 31.
A Nigam spokesman today said the scheme would be available to those consumers whose tubewell connections under low-tension industrial category were existing before December 1, 2006 and which are actually being used for agriculture purpose.
It will not be applicable to horticulture tubewells or other low-tension industrial connections released thereafter. The conversion of horticulture tubewell connections to agriculture category would be permitted to those eligible consumers who make entire payment of outstanding principal amount.
Surcharge, on such cases, would be waived off at the time of making such payment.
The eligible consumers will have to submit a written request for conversion to the concerned Asstt General Manager of the DHBVN by January 31. The AGM shall verify, by taking photos, within five days whether the connection is being used for agriculture purpose and the report will then be examined by the General Manager who will issue final orders of conversion.
The conversion shall be effective from the billing cycle just thereafter. Meters shall be installed on all converted connections. In case such consumers have applied for tubewell connections the same would be cancelled.
