Raining in Jalgaon District, worsening state of electricity:
Most of the places in district yesterday witnessed showery raining in evening around 7:30PM. The sudden raining troubled hawkers and pedestrians. Most the District now a day remain in total dark during evening time from 6PM to 9PM following so called Load Shedding terribly disrupting living.
The earlier Electricity Board converted into four different companies with vision to improve standards and consumer facilities have failed to understand its customers. In spite of introducing more of customer friendly and traditional business convenience approaches, it is in reverse pathway. Electricity Bill provided by the Company is one such outrageous example that gives no understanding of billing to customers and scrolls to two pages with consumer companies advertisements posted on it. Who has given rights to Government/ Government-owned Organisations to disgrace and uncomforting its loyal customers? Does Governments take everything for granted by citizens?
We are on revolution verge and such painful state of Government Organisations panics more of disgusting moves rather than adding to overall Country's progress. More than 95% of State Electricity Company Consumers would give a clear-cut statement of getting excess billings backed by ZERO Service. Moreover the recently run Load Shedding and Zero Load concepts are worst ones. A year before load shedding used to have regular timings and now there is no timing at all. The current scenario of electricity supply reminds us of UP and Bihar once again where Electricity moreover is a Government Gift to Citizens rather than necessity and Power Generators/ Invertors/ Batteries are lifelines.
