Jammu Power Distribution Corporation Limited (JPDCL) of J&K Power Development Department (J&K,PDD) today appealed the consumers to make judicious use of electricity in their households, offices and business centres by switching off all lights, gadgets, devices, etc. when not required.

Addressing a joint press conference, Chairman JPDCL, Jagmohan Sharma, and Corporation’s Managing Director, Er Gurmeet Singh, urged the people to minimise the use of heavy power consuming devices like air conditioners, microwaves, electric cook-tops, etc. especially during peak demand hours from 7pm to 11pm.
The Corporation Authorities further called for avoiding use of multiple AC units, within households for decreasing system burden, besides reducing their own bills and use the electricity to the limit of agreement with JPDCL.
They also encouraged the people to report cases of power pilferage/power theft, being resorted to by some unscrupulous elements of the society, so that action can be taken against such persons and law abiding & honest citizens do not suffer.
The JDPCL Chairman asked the people to stay vigilant and help in identifying any black sheep within JPDCL-J&K PDD, which are in connivance with power thieves in the society. “Society cannot progress without the active contribution of its members and everyone should do his part, conscientiously’: he added.
They impressed upon the consumers to motivate everyone to make timely payments of their electricity bills, so that the JPDCL-J&K PDD can maintain and improve its indispensible services.
“Service without expenses cannot be expected because the entire power network demands recurring operation and maintenance costs” they said.
The JPDCL also appealed to the social, cultural & religious organizations, trade & commerce bodies, vyapar mandals, shopkeeper associations, audio-visual & print media, political parties & organizations, people associated with social media & influencers, Municipal and Panchayat Raj Institution representatives to use their influence & advise the general public for using power judiciously & stop power theft in their respective areas.
“It has been noticed that a large number of consumers in every area of Jammu province resort to power theft using kundis/hooks thereby causing difficulties to the honest electricity consumers too. This culture must end for our own good” they added and said that to enjoy quality power there is need to say no to power theft.
The Chairman said that JPDCL/J&K PDD appreciates all out efforts of its entire workforce, in making it possible to provide power supply to every nook and corner of the Jammu Province, be it urban areas, hilly/inaccessible deep rural belts or gunfire blazing International/LOC Borders within Jammu Region, braving all odds and amidst the current pandemic wave of Covid-19. JPDCL has lost many of its workers to Covid-19 and we pay humble homage to them all.
