Regular power cuts throw life out of gear in 2 Gurugram societies

Gurugram: The residents of NBCC Green View and BPTP Park Serene Society are facing extreme challenges due to long-standing electricity issues in Sector 37C and D, Gurugram. NBCC Green View has been receiving electricity from the rural connection since October 10 because the independent feeder got defunct. From that time, the independent feeder remains defunct and there have been no measures to start the smart city connection for the area.

Yadvendra Yadav, a resident of NBCC Green View informed that the CTPT (Current Transformer Potential Transformer) that provided electricity in their society got burnt. However, instead of repairing it, the electricity corporation provided a temporary fix which has resulted in major power cuts. He further informed that their builder had deposited Rs 86 lakh to get two 11 KV independent feeder circuits but DHBVN has provided only one so far. They are not updating about an alternate circuit plan.

“The scope of cable repair and maintenance is of DHBVN as per agreement of NBCC green view society but they always try to pass on to the builder and always provide temporary solution through 11 KV current overhead Basai village rural connection. Fluctuations in voltage cause damage to home appliances. Moreover, the lifts get stuck which is very unsafe,” he said.

The residents have filed an RTI asking the current status of the current circuit and installation of the smart city connection. However, they have not received any reply. Two complaints are also pending on the CM window.

CitySpidey reached Mr Praveen, SDO of DHBVN “I have conveyed the matter to my seniors at the departments. Since the CTPT is not available with the department, I had requested the society members to get it arranged so the work can be finished as soon as possible. We are trying to resolve the matter under our end.”

Similarly, BTPT Park Serene society has been facing tremendous power cuts due to cable fault laid down by the builder and not handed over to DHBVN.

Residents allege that faulty cable and poor workmanship cause power cuts

Hemant Kumar, General Secretary, Park Serene RWA informed that the electricity went off at around 1.30 pm on Sunday afternoon and came around 6.15 pm on Monday evening. He informed that their society has witnessed 167 hours of power cut in July, 60 hours in August and nearly 49 hours till this date in October.

“More than 600 families living in Sector-37D, Signature Hospital and two schools are affected. In such a situation, people have to bear the burden of taking electricity from the developer's generator for Rs 35 per unit.”

CitySpidey also tried to reach the head of the BPTP maintenance agency to understand the reason for delay in handing over the transition line to DHBVN  but there was no response from their side.
