Chandigarh, Sep 3: In order to make non-paying consumers aware of their personal responsibility of making payment of their energy bills, the sub-divisional officers of Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam(UHBVN) would contact 6000 consumers of their respective sub-divisions every month personally.
A spokesman said here today that each sub-divisional officer would contact 50 major non-payers and pursue them to make payment of their outstanding amounts. The officers will also give a feedback to the higher authorities.
He said, though, the Nigam has targeted to disconnect over 4 lakh connections of non-payers during the current fiscal, personal persuasion has been considered as a better option which would help change the mindset of the non-payers. The Nigam may consider to accept payment of the outstanding amount in installments.
However, the ongoing campaign to disconnect supply of non-payers would also continue, the spokesman added.
