Useless DG set ban
If the Govt has to implement because NGT or EPCA says so then there needs to be a penalty on the utility company per connection 5% of average bill value discounted for every 1 hour of power failure. Even if power goes for 10 mins they have to discount bill by 5%.

Before you all form and mobilise a cartel to take down the tyranny of these discoms, understand the reeling pressure they have to operate in. Clearing their dues in time is a state subject; check with your local elected official how much does her/his office owes to the discoms till date.
Even though cheaper power is easily available, the PPA forces them to buy power at exorbitant prices and then distribute most of it for free; because freebies get govts elected.
And then the domineering autocratic order of powering down a power generation plant to show the efforts of the government in their battle against pollution; discoms now have to buy power from alternate sources.
Please educate yourselves and walk a mile in their shoes before going up in arms and shooting down the most vulnerable target.
P.s.: for those already have formed an opinion about me, no, I do not work for a discom or any power company in general. more
