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.
