Mathura. No major power theft incident has been reported in the district for many years. While the department is continuously taking strict action against small consumers and defaulters. According to Executive Engineer Krishna Nagar Sachin Gupta, before Kovid, there was a target of 100 FIR as per month. Now it is almost 70. Even during the Corona period, the campaign of the Electricity Department has not slowed down. On Sunday, reports of power theft were filed against eight people in the city. Hundreds of RC of defaulters have been issued. Where in the last several years, no action has been taken from industrial area to hotel motel. No raids have been caught and no electricity theft clothes have been done. The assumption is being made that big consumers are honest while small consumers steal. The focus of the department has also shifted here. Even if the officer wants to take action against a big man, it is not that easy.
Electricity theft is taking place in the park and population area being developed by illegally blocking the river bank of Yamuna. A trap has been laid for several kilometers by illegally laying electricity cables inside the ground. There are over a dozen Sumbersvilles being run. Electricity is on. The officers deliberately turned a blind eye to this side. When the department took action on the complaints received continuously, then they had to pay for their own taking. After the action, when it came to getting an FIR, the officers have been saving their necks.
SDO Masani Gaurav Gupta said after the action of July 6 that the matter came to my notice. Action has been taken on this, FIR is being lodged. When action was taken with the Vigilance team of the Electricity Department, Sammarseville was found moving. This came to my personal notice, as soon as it was found out the team reached the site and action was taken with the vigilance team. The submersibles have been confiscated by disconnecting the supply. Vigilance has been entrusted with the responsibility. Vigilance will take action by forming a big team. It may be that for this the help of the district administration had to be taken. This is a place that cannot be easily caught. They have put underground cables, it was also not easy to find out from where the cables were brought. Gaurav Gupta has been posted here as SDO Masani for five years. The accused was also searched by the department.
