Noida: On August 27, the residents of Supertech Capetown, Noida, Sector 74, raised the issue of long power cuts during midnight. Residents shared their tweets and raised this issue.
Cape Town Association Of Apartments Owners (CAAO) shared a tweet with the caption, “@MdPvvnl @VNSingh_CENOIDA @CapeOwners @pvvnlmeerut @PankajSinghBJP We 25000 people at Capetown, Sec 74 Noida are being harassed for the last 10 days by long power cuts during midnight inspite of paying the highest rate @ 7.70 per unit. @ptshrikant जी कृपया इसको ठीक कराएँ।”
Residents alleged that even though 500 families have multiple electricity points in the society, power-tripping increased day by day. They shared that sector 74 area doesn't face power cut issues, but in this monsoon, residents faced the problem of long power cuts during midnight. Residents alleged that the rate of electricity according to Paschimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd. (PVVNL) is 6.30 rupees but the builder charges 7.70 rupees.
Arun Sharma, AOA president shared, “There have been long power cuts during the night in this monsoon season, since past 10 days. We had a word with PVVNL but they said it was a local fault. When we tried to talk with the management team or the builder, they said they aren't responsible for the cuts. Many residents do not have power backups and in summer, it was very difficult to stay in a room with no fan.”
He added, “PVVNL charged the builder 6.30 rupees per unit but the builder is taking 7.70 rupees from the residents which are illegal. Capetown is a high rise society of Noida and power cut has become a major issue here,”
Pranav Mishra, a resident of Capetown said, “How we will survive? I have a job in the IT sector and I have to deal with clients from the USA and am working the night shift. Due to power failure, my WiFi stopped working and it hindered my work. Most of the family do not have power back up and they suffer a lot.”
Another resident, Varnit said, “During this monsoon season, there have been long power cuts in this no power-cut zone. No one is doing anything about the situation It is the biggest society of Noida with approximately 4700 families and they all are being troubled.”
