I am writing this mail in behalf of Vaigai Nagar Housing Society & residential people who living in ward No 5, Sholavandan, Madurai Dist.
From the 1st June 2010 onwards we are facing heavy power cut in our ward (only in our ward no 5), we had a power cut of more than 8 hours i.e. from 09.00 am to 05.30 pm and in night also the power gone 2 ~ 3 time more than 30 mins every time.
On 2nd June we faced power cut more the 12 hours in our ward (only in our ward no 5), morning power gone from 05.30 am to 06.30 am, after that power gone from 10.00 am to 05.30 pm, approx every one hour the power gone for 30 mins for the whole night around 7 times for 30 mins in night.
Today i.e. 3rd June again the same problem, power gone for 1 hour in the morning & now it’s gone from 10.00 am, when the power will restore only gods know !!!
This thing is happening quite frequently in our ward, Sholavandan have 18 Wards & it’s come under urban fedder & our ward no 5 has been consider as rural fedder by the TNEB. I really don’t understand why & how the one ward has been consider as rural fedder out of 18 !!! We communicate the same to the EB Office Sholavandan many times in verbally also by written.
In the same area ( Sholavandan ) 17 wards having the power cut of 2 ~ 3 hours in a day, but why only ward no 5 have power cut more than fixed power cut duration. No one is ready to give the proper response to our ward people by the TNEB Staffs.
Yesterday I call the Local EB office to know the reason for the power cut & when its restore, I tried more the 1 hour the ring was going on but no one is picking up the phone. Finally after one hour one person pick the phone & he simply answer we don’t have any knowledge about you query. He gave another number to call. And I call that number too. He simply replied it will come & cut the phone before I respond. I again call the number, ring was going on no response for some time. Later they pick the phone & said after getting the order then only we give supply to your area & he cut the phone again. Wow what a great response from our people really it should be appreciate !!! Again I call him & ask who is the authorised person to give order to give supply. He gives another number to call, its number of EB Station, Alagar Kovil, Madurai.
I call that number, he simply answered we don’t know anything when the power restore & cut the phone. I called him again & asked why you cut the phone, no answer from him & cut the phone. I called him again 2 times, after hearing my voice he cut the phone.
Finally I called Mr Er.P.K.Alagarsamy,B.E. - Superintending Engineer - Madruai EDC / Madurai, but he is gone for lunch someone pick the phone and give some another number & I asked who’s number is this, he told that the number is some other officer who is next to Mr Alagarsamy. I called that person, he explain some many things & finally he told that its order from Chennai Head Quater. We can’t do anything in this.
Really I am quite surprise & shocked about our TNEB staff behaviour & response, I couldn’t understand any one senior official like Chairman or some others officer giving order to power cut my ward, especially ward no 5 ???
The public announcement by Tamil Nadu CM was saying only 2 hours power cut will be done/day & no power cut in night. Instead of 2 hours it can be 3 hours due to unavoidable circumstance but it should not be 10 or 12 hours. If 17 wards can get the power for 20 ~ 21 hours in a day, why can’t we get the power ? Then there is a big mistake / careless in electricity distribution plan by the TNEB.
I request you all too please forward or Intimate the concern person to talk the corrective action to restore the power issue & consider our ward no 5 in Urban Fedder.
I really don’t know whether I get any reply or not, still I am writing this mail any one person will reply & give me a genuine feed back out of 5 persons.
Thanks & Regards,
