government three years back, for augmentation of the power infrastructure. This shows that the government is not serious towards providing relief to the people.
Despite these factors there are so many factors which are responsible for the present power crisis. E-metering was installed in the state to check the power theft but the department failed in making the state fully e-metered. It is surprising that even in some parts of the city e-metering has not been carried on. It is surprising that despite the enactment of law by the state legislature in 2010, which mandated supply of electricity to all its consumers through correct meters i.e E- meters only. Under this legislation power supply to unmetered areas were to be stopped after April 2012. Having failed in e-metering, now the state govt. has begun installation of insulated wire to check the illegal use of power but, keeping the past experience in view, we can this system is sure to be unsuccessful, as the deptt. is working on this scheme since last .
