UP to launch drive against power theft

Lucknow, July 17 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh Power Corp Ltd (UPPCL) will launch a two-month drive against power theft beginning July 21, officials said on Friday.

This follows a direction from Chief Secretary Alok Ranjan who has expressed displeasure over continuing power theft in the state, said an official.

District magistrates have been roped in for effective implementation and monitoring of the campaign.

“The initiative will strengthen UPPCL financially and it will also prevent power pilferage,” Ranjan told officials.

During the campaign, electricity consumers who do not have legal power connection would be given legal connection and brought under the metering and billing system.
