Nagda: Residents worried as electricity department raids power grid at Warco City

Nagda: The trouble of the Warco City manager at Ingoria Road has increased once again as the team of the Vigilance wing of Electricity Department carried out a raid and busted illegal sale of electricity through an electricity grid in Warco City on Tuesday.

Frauds with plot buyers in Warco City and RM Dhariwal township were brought to the fore by complainant Gautam Jain.

Jain told Free Press the coloniser had promised the plot holders that a garden would be developed in the colony. But to make profit at the cost of the plot holders the coloniser installed a power grid on the land marked for the garden.

The complainant has approached the collector, SDM Nagda, collector, town and village investment, tehsildar, municipal officials and superintending engineer, executive engineer and electricity department. Collector has also sought a report from SDM Nagda.

On Tuesday, on the complaint of Jain, a Vigilance team of the Electricity Department raided the area. The Vigilance team visited the buildings constructed in Warco City and checked the electrical load and also interacted with the residents. The residents told Vigilance team, that the coloniser had constructed the power grid without TNC approval and power was being supplied to other people by illegally providing an electricity connection in the name of the colony. The sale of electricity is sole jurisdiction of electricity department. It has also been learned that due to technical reasons and lapses of the colonizer the electricity department is not providing power connections to the residents. Now the raid on the power grid has added to the power woes of the residents.
