APSPDCL focusses on collection of accumulated dues

Southern Power Distribution Company of Andhra Pradesh Limited (APSPDCL) has constituted special teams to carry out surprise inspections across the district to reduce the accumulation of dues. The special teams will be tasked with on-the-spot collection of dues from low tension consumers and disconnect power supply immediately if the consumers fail to clear the dues. Earlier, APSPDCL used to allow consumers to pay bills of two months in one go with penalties. But with discoms facing a severe financial crisis, the officials have now decided to pull off power supply immediately after the due date of bill payment.
