Chandigarh, Feb 16 (UNI) Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam has decided to extend the Voluntary Disclosure Scheme of Load for domestic, non-domestic and tubewell consumers upto March 31. The Nigam has also decided to introduce the scheme for industrial category consumers.
While stating this here today, a spokesman of the Nigam said that the willing applicants had been allowed to get their load voluntarily extended by submitting application and agreement form alongwith test report and deposit the requisite advance consumption security.
He said that in case of AP tubewell and industrial category, the extension of load would be regularised with the existing system, if lines and transformers could take up the additional load. However, if the existing system could not take up the additional load, then the system would be upgraded and augmented by the Nigam after observing required formalities. Further more, if the capacity was not available in the feeding substation, then the consumers would be asked to remove the un-authorised load.
The spokesman said that all the industrial consumers would have to pay the service connection charges for extension of load. In case the extended load causes a change in category of consumers from Low Tension to High Tension, the consumer would required to declare his contract demand and change to HT pressure of supply by completing all the related formalities. If the extended load necessitates installation of metering equipment of higher rating, the consumer would provide the metering equipment in case the same was not available with the Nigam.
He said that the applications already pending with the Nigam for extension of load would be regularised under the scheme without penalty.
He urged the consumers to avail the benefit of the scheme and help Utilities in strengthening the infrastructure to meet the load requirement.
