BBIA for release of pending power connections of units

Bari Brahmana Industrial Association (BBIA) has urged upon the Power Development Department (PDD) to restore pending power connections of the industrial units.
In a meeting of Bari Brahmana Industries Association  held under the chairmanship of  Lalit Mahajan,  president BBIA, the members  discussed  the casual attitude of PDD towards Industrial sector with  respect   to clearance of  pending Power sanction cases of 7800 HP Power Load of  new connections / additional Power requirement of   the Units located in SIDCO Industrial Complex, Bari Brahmana from last two years.
The members present  showed strong  resentment towards the delaying tactics adopted by PDD  for not holding the regular meetings  for the sanction of new connections/additional load of the Industrial Units in spite of Govt Order No. 152-PDD of 2011 dated 28-04-2011 by the virtue of which the regular monthly meeting should be held to clear the pending cases of Power sanction.
The unit holders are suffering very badly as they have already invested crores of rupees  on the plant and machinery and sitting idle due to non release of power connections. Whenever the members approach the Department to know the status of their cases, their request is always turned down with a lame excuse of line constrains. It is a matter of great concern that the officials of the PDD are sleeping for the last two years to up-grade the infrastructure.
It is pertinent to mention here that on one side Industries Minister is taking steps on war footing basis for the rapid Industrialization in the State to create the employment opportunities but on the other side the negative attitude of the PDD is  creating hurdles in  the growth of Industrial sector.
BBIA appealed the Dy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh who is also incharge Power Minister and Minister for Industries and Commerce  Chander Prakash to  intervene into the matter and issue necessary orders to clear the pending cases.
The meeting was also attended  by other office bearers including  Rahul Bansal,  Varun Singla,  Ajay Langer- general secretary,  PS  Jaggi and  Viraaj  Malhota.
