There is no privation predicted in the Draft Electricity Consumer Rights Rules. The Govt of India power Ministry have published the Electricity Consumers rights, responsibility and duties of the DISCOM. with compensation to the Electricity consumers for submitting the electricity bills beyond 60 days etc. TheSeveral provisions are enclosed in the draft. Better read the Draft and submit the valuable suggestion before the 30th September so that appropriate step can be taken for the benefit of electricity consumers of India more  
Notifications are drafted by experts under the guidance of the Bureaucrats. Once the rules are implemented, the lapses can be noticed for taking corrective measures. more  
Privatisation is not a solution . Nexus between corporate houses & "majority" political party became evident during lockdown period. I am a victim. Mixed economy is a golden mean & automatically checks our political system. more  
To start with, All power generation and distrution companies should
be privatized to reduce cost and corruption. Power Consumer complaint
redressal Authority (PCCRA)should be appointed in every State to solve the problems within a fixed time frame. First of all, the complaint should go to the CMD/CEO of the Discom and if no response received within 15 days, the complaint should be forwarded to the PCCRA. more  
Sorry. i beg to differ.
Once it is privatised, monthly bills will go through the roof, as in Mumbai, my uncle's power bill for his flat at Andheri SEEPZ area is Rs. 17,000 per month .. Nothing short of daylight robbery .. more  
While googling, one can find paid statements like this:
"Because, the amount of RF radiation you could be exposed to from a smart meter is much less than what you could be exposed to from a cell phone, it is very unlikely that living in a house with a smart meter increases risk of cancer."

And also the factual reports like this:
The fact is, while 'Smart Meters' are giving us more control over our energy use they emit as many as 14,000 short bursts of intense microwave radiation a day, disrupting cellular electrochemistry and causing health symptoms from migraine to tinnitus, insomnia, dizziness, anxiety, chest pain, palpitations and memory loss.

There should be a radiation testing for all smart meter models within India. The SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) Value should be mentioned on every smart meter and no authority should force consumers to install smart meters compulsorily. more  
Excellent 👏
Aptly described in simple terms.

Appreciate and thank you. more
