Four Haryana power corporation staffers suspended

Gurugram, August 10

A junior engineer (JE) and three other employees were suspended today for leading to a loss of over Rs 3.6 lakh to the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN). They installed a meter at a house, but didn't register it in the DHBVN records so the bill was not generated for months.

According to information, a consumer applied for a power connection in 2018. He soon got the meter installed, but his account was not registered in the DHBVN records due to the staff members' negligence. After the incident was highlighted, the issue was investigated by SE Pramod Singla who found all four "guilty".

Acting on his report, higher-ups suspended JE Vijender Singh, CA Jitender Singh, UDC Shamim Khan and lineman Pawan Kumar and attached them to the Narnaul office of the corporation. It is also reported that due to their negligence, the corporation has faced a loss of 52,566 power units which amount to Rs 3,67,000. The corporation has ordered recovery of the loss from the "errant" workers. When contacted, Sachin Yadav, XEN, Circle 2, said the four employees had been suspended.Sources said lineman Pawan Kumar is facing another case of cheating wherein he is said to have duped a Ghata village resident. An FIR has been registered. — OC
