Srinagar, Dec 05: The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) urged the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to announce amnesty for power tariffs in favour of Commercial and Industrial Consumers.
In a statement issued, President, Sheikh Ashiq Ahmad sought the attention of Manoj Sinha, Lieutenant Governor, and Arun Kumar Mehta, Chief Secretary,  towards the industrial sector of Jammu and Kashmir, due to the financial crunch a number of units have not availed the previous Power Amnesty Scheme.
He requested the authorities not to disconnect the power supplies forcing the industrialists/ commercial establishments to close down their units.
“Recently we met Principal Secretary, Power Development Department , J&K and we are waiting for the outcome of our suggestions given in the meeting and we request LG Administration to announce amnesty to the Commercial Consumers at par with Domestic Consumers so that they can pay their (pending) electricity bills waiving interest and penalties besides after settling the same with the Power Development Department,” he said.
The KCCI said that the power situation in the Kashmir both for industries as also domestic use remains to be uncertain and erratic load shedding and curtailment of power is frequent beyond tolerance, the supply is erratic yet the bills are raised irrationally.
