[Resolved]  Tneb — power shutdown and irresponsible answer

there was power shutdown in my area very frequently and they give some line connection temporiarly (mainly during sundays ) during night hours.though they give such connections they get the wire needed from the residenciers itself, but one night when i called the eb to give such connection where the connections have been already given to our neighbours they asked me to provide wire since no one was there in my home to get the wire i requested the eb person to get the needed wire for which i would pay but the eb person said me that they will not help me untill i get the wire by myself even they cut my call while i was speaking . i feel they were so irresponsible to get a lady helped in such bad situation.

I remitted amount to TNEB for Electricity new domestic connection on 10.07.2008 as per receipt (07 E No.313797)

Till the date they said that due to the shortage of pole, they are not giving the EB connection to my house.

We are living in Shenoy Nagar Arunachalam Street (behind Pachaiyappas Collage).
The past 2months we have one phase problem in our street. I have complaint several times to the AE No; [protected] to rectify this problem permanently, because we are getting power failure frequently only after 10PM.

Yesterday power got failure same time. I have complaint the following numbers,

The above numbers I have called and followed for the rectification status up to early morning 2PM. We got power supply only at 2PM. We are having 2kids at home. We were out of our home till early morning 2PM. Since we are paying 4rupees per unit to our house owner.

Dear Sir,

Ref: This is with reference to the email dated April-18th 2008.

I would like to bring to you kind notice that even after writing to TNEB
Regarding the hardship we face in our locality due to regular power failure no action has been initiated so far.And as usual we are having frequent power failures in our street, everyday atleast
3 to 4 times the power goes off. When we try to call the local TNEB
office in sembium – perambur, nobody picks the call and this has become a routine now for the past one and a half year.

I have also personally handed over a letter the to JE regarding the same and no action
has been initiated so far in this regard and our suffering is increasing day-by-day.

My father being a heart patient and he is finding it very difficult in this hot summer
because of this frequent power failures in our area.

I request you to kindly look into this and do the needful at the earliest.

Thanks & Regards

no power in my street past one month during night 19 street, periyarnagar ch82 near kolathur no one is talking action

I live in 13B/30, kaveri salai 2nd cross st, Kodungaiyur. We live in a rented house where there is only single phase. We have the problem of frequent power cut and voltage fluctuation. When we contact the Sembiam EB during power failure the call is always in bus yor it is temporarily out of service. However if they pick the call they treat us so badly as though we are their servants. We have power cuts mostly after 9:00 PM. When we ask them the reason for power cut they will say as cable problem, and we would have the same cable problem more than 3 or 4 times a week. I doubt weather that is the reason, if that is the reason what is the standard of hte cable they use?? This the fate of a citizen of a democratic country. Hope atleast this would be looked into before being ignored.

In spite of several oral complaints, we the residents of 13th MAIN ROAD VIJAYANAGAR and 6th CROSS STREET, face REGULAR POWER FLUCTUATION in our area and also LOW POWER due which the ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT'S get damaged. It is mainly due to heavy load on the line due to the upcoming apartments and houses . Hence this needs an immediate attention, and provide the area near the 13th MAIN ROAD and 6th CROSS STREET a TRANSFORMER to check the LOW POWER and FLUCTUATION.

An immediate action is very much appreciated.
