Following the massive response to  the Haryana Power Distribution Corporations’ Voluntary Disclosure Scheme (VDS), which allows power consumers to declare the unauthorised extension of load without paying any penalty, the officials from the state-run power companies will go on a door-to-door campaign to ensure its hassle-free implementation.

 Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam CMD Devender Singh, while disclosing this on Sunday, said the sub-divisional officer and junior engineers of each sub-division will hold camps in villages in their respective areas where the distribution system is overloaded.

The officials will not only provide all the facilities for declaring the unauthorised extension of load, including the Application and Agreement forms, but will also motivate and persuade the consumers by telling them the benefits of the VDS.

According to Devender, there was sufficient power available in the state to meet the requirement of the consumers. He said that if there is any disruption to the supply during the scheduled hours, it is mainly due to overloading caused by the extension of load and power theft.
