Indore (Madhya Pradesh): People eligible for the power resolution plan, which is for giving relief to people who defaulted on electricity bills during the first wave of Covid-19, are turning up in large numbers at camps set up by the Madhya Pradesh Western Region Power Distribution Company.

The government has implemented the resolution plan for waiving last year’s power bills for the period of the first Covid-19 wave. Camps are being organised at 1,600 places in the Malwa-Nimar region to provide exemption to domestic consumers with up to one kilowatt connection. The camps will continue till December 15.

West Discom managing director Amit Tomar said the dues of domestic consumers of up to 1 kilowatt during the corona outbreak (till August 31, 2020) were deferred by the government. “Orders have been received for 100 per cent rebate on surcharge of the outstanding amount, 40 per cent on depositing the remaining bill amount in lump sum and 25 per cent discount on filling the option of depositing it in 6 equal instalments,” he said.
