There is really issue with the PVVNL especially in Noida, Gautam Budh Nagar, UP.
Every one here in the department needs “Bribe”. If you want to apply for temporary connection, to install a new meter, to increase a load & to change the connection type. If you are not able to pay the BRIBE what they demand by these criminals will send bill extra with some issues of ARREARS and with more reading or some other issues with your meters etc.
The best part of the PVVNL - PASCHIMANCHAL VIDYUT VITRAN NIGAM Ltd. Is that each & every person of the department is doing these activities and the government is not taking any serious action on them.
A recently case happened at Sector -44, Noida where JE – A. K. Kapil is the incharge of Sub-Power Station 33/11 KVA and has seen taking bribe of Rs 2, 00, 000 Lakhs from a Kothi of sector-44. This case is already known to the department very well. Despite of removing this person from the department he asks more bribe from all the sectors of Noida other wise he cuts the electricity or sends the vigilance people to check the meters and make then receive Bribe for the same.
Just think we say we are free from corruption but sorry to say we still to have pay bribe for basic necessity of our life.
