The information was revealed after the information seeker filed an appeal before State Information Commission (SIC) as he was denied the information by Executive Engineer (XEn) concerned. SIC has directed Power Development Department (PDD) to take action against the power thief who happens to be a shopkeeper if he fails to regularize the power connection.
Details available with Early Times reveal that one Mohammad Amin Wani R/O Chowdhary Bagh Rainawari Srinagar filed an application under RTI before PIO/Executive Engineer, Electric Division-II Rajbagh, Srinagar on 19.01.2018 seeking information with regard to providing duplicate electric bills for January 2018 in respect of electric installation number 26143 & 40978 maintained by Electric Sub-Division, Hazuri Bagh, Srinagar. The appellant also sought duplicate electric bills of installation numbers of the electric connections provided to the owners/occupants of building/shops in the building situated at Sarai-bala near Peer Dastigeer Sahib belonging to one Abdul Aziz Wani and action taken report on the AEE Hazuribagh's report bearing No.HZB/65 dated 22.05.2017.
Not satisfied with the reply/information provided by the AEE Electric Sub-Division, Hazuri Bagh, Srinagar vide his letter dated 07.02.2018, the applicant filed subsequent appeals.
The 2nd appeal came up for hearing before the Commission on 19.09.2018 wherein appellant submitted that the PIO failed to provide the duplicate electric bills of the consumers in the building situated at Saraibala near Peer Dastigeer Saib. The appellant further submitted that the PIO informed him in his reply that no electric installation is registered in the name of M/S Fancy Crockery, but the PIO has not specified the action taken or being taken against the illegal electric connection used by the M/S Fancy Crockery.
The AEE Electric Sub-Division, Hazuri Bagh, Srinagar however submitted a written statement dated 16.10.2018 wherein he submitted that owner of M/S Fancy Crockery Shop is taking advantage of the closeness of conductor and is using electricity illegally during late hours in the evening when field staff is off duty.
The AEE further submitted that shifting of conductor is not possible as the area is congested, the by-lane is very narrow and the alternate route is not available. He also submitted that in order to curb electricity theft by way of hooking and all other means, the department is replacing all the bare conductors by cables in phased manner .
SIC in its order ruled, " the 2nd appeal is disposed of with a direction to the AEE Electric Sub-Division, Hazuri Bagh, Srinagar to provide details of parentage to the appellant within a period of 10 days from the date of receipt of this order and also take appropriate action against the owner of M/S Fancy Crockery shop in case he fails to regularize the power connection within the stipulated time period".
