The residents of Lotus Zing, a high-rise residential society in Noida's Sector 168, have been living without electricity for last three days after the Paschimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd (PVVNL), the power distribution corporation disconnected their power supply following non-clearance of Rs 48 lakhs dues.

The residents of the society complained that the corporation is not ready to accept the court's order, which states that essential services- water and electricity- can not be disrupted even incase of pending dues or any other issues.

The corporation disconnected the society's supply on Wednesday evening violating the court order. 

The housing project is currently in National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) and an insolvency resolution professional was recently appointed.

But the corporation says that the developer had obtained a temporary power supply connection for the development of the housing project. It can not follow the order on this kind of power supply connection as the order is effective for permanent connection only. 

Residents complained that they are paying a high rate for having supply from DG set in the society which is also causing pollution as no exhaust has been installed for the Diesel Generator (DG) set. 

An official from the PVVNL said that the corporation has been asking the residents to deposit a partial amount of Rs 10 lakh of the dues to restore the supply to the society without which the supply will not be restored.

The residents told CitySpidey that after the appointment of IRP, it is difficult for them to get fuel for the DG set. 

A resident said, ''Supply from the DG set also disrupted more than three times on Friday. The developer is also not giving fuel for running the DG set. They gave 1,500 litter of fuel on request of residents' group but that too will finish within a couple of hours. It has become very difficult to stay in this society.''
