The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has offered an instalment scheme to high- and low-tension domestic, commercial and industrial consumers to help them clear their pending and current electricity bills.
According to MSEDCL, the scheme would also offer to reinstate the power supply of defaulters. Consumers who have filed court cases regarding electricity bills can also avail the instalment scheme, provided they agree to withdraw the cases unconditionally. The consumers whose power supply has not been disconnected will be allowed to clear the arrears in three instalments without making any down payment. Those whose supply has been disconnected will have to make 30 per cent down payment and will be allowed to clear the arrears in 12 instalments. They will also have to submit an application for reconnection and pay the required reconnection charges.
