Greater Noida: Residents of various societies of Greater Noida West recently held a meeting with the officials of Noida Power Company Limited (NPCL) regarding regular power cuts in the area and also sought multipoint connection.
Representatives from Rudra Nob, Panchsheel Greens, Himalayan Pride and Gaur City along with the Noida Extension Flat Owners Main Association (NEFOMA) team met Sarnath Ganguly, Vice President of NPCL and project manager Tarun Chauhan and discussed the issues of regular power cuts and tripping at various societies.
As per the NEFOMA team, Ganguly said that the tripping was done because of the moisture in high-tension panel. Because of it, the connection tripped two to three times in Eros Sampoornam, Divyansh, La Residentia, Supertech Eco Village 1, Trident and Nirala Aspire a few days back.
The VP said that the issue has been resolved in all the societies and no problem will be faced if proper maintenance is conducted by the concerned society. He added that letters will be written to all the builders to fix room heaters and exhaust in the high-tension room of their societies by the NPCL soon.
Vikas Kumar, Panchsheel Greens AOA President said they were in contact with NPCL for a long time for the connection. They have now given the nod for the connection within the existing framework, which will not bring any extra cost.
He added that the only cost that might be incurred is that of separating the meter from common area meter though efforts are being made to lower that too.
In the meeting, it was agreed that in order to seek connection, one can write to the NPCL to move the process further to acquire a multi-point connection after taking due permission from the AOA or builder.
Societies which don’t have a mandatory consent of 51 per cent consent will be kept on the waiting list. The cost to get a multipoint connection will be between 10 to 15 thousand rupees.
Annu Khan, President of NEFOMA said they have approached NPCL as there was continuous power cuts in many societies and due to which, the residents were very upset. On the other hand, in dozens of societies like Himalayan Pride, Gaur City, Ajnara Homes, complaints of maintenance and water charges being collected from prepaid meters was brought to notice.
“We spoke to the officials and have asked him to do the needful”, Khan added.
