Draft rules to simplify procedure for new electricity connection

Under the draft rules providing for the Rights of Electricity Consumers, the power ministry has proposed to simplify the procedure for electricity connections. Accordingly, just two documents would be required for an electricity connection with load of up to 10 kw.

The ministry invited suggestions and recommendations from the public on the draft by September 30. The main objective of the draft prepared by the ministry includes enhancing the reliability of services, a timely and simplified procedure for connection, and 2 to 5 per cent rebate on serving bills, among other things.
