Yess, if the recommendation of the public grievances commission of the Delhi government is taken into account. It has already sent this demand of the residents to the power department for consideration.
Will Delhi residents receive their monthly electricity bill in a sealed envelope? Yes, if the recommendation of the public grievances commission of the Delhi government is taken into account.
The change, if it happens, will happen in the next couple of months.
Residents have been time and again complaining that uncovered electricity bills disclose the amount to be paid — something that most people are not happy about.
The public grievances commission, which invites public opinions and grievances on various public services provided by the state government, examines complaints and send its recommendation to respective departments.
On this issue of bills too, the commission sent its recommendation to the power department of the Delhi government, and urged it to take up the issue with the power distribution companies.
Many senior consumers have also opposed sending of electricity bill through mails, since most are not internet savvy.
Rishiraj Bhati, a senior official with BSES Rajdhani, confirmed the report. He said, “Directions have come from the power department and we are working on it. In fact, we have fixed a meeting with senior officials of power department of the Delhi government on April 4, where we’ll have an open discussion on the matter.”
