Ex-gratia doubled for electrocution deaths

Free power supply increased to nurseries in rural areas

Hyderabad, August 6, 2007

At a review meeting on the power-related issues, Chief Minister Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy took a serious exception over the increase in deaths due to improper maintenance of the power supply network. He said that nearly electrocution deaths were at about 200 every year in the State. The Minister for Energy Mohd Ali Shabbir and AP Transco CMD Rachel Chatterjee and senior officials were present at the meeting.

The Chief Minister enhanced the ex-gratia for electrocution deaths from the present Rs.50,000 to Rs.1 lakh for an adult and Rs.50,000 for a child. He also decided to allow free supply to nurseries raised in rural areas including Mandal Headquarters. However, nurseries raised on farm houses or used for commercial purposes are not eligible for free power.

Speaking to the media after the review meeting, the Energy Minister said a decision was taken not to collect surcharge on discontinued household connection till supply was restored. Whatever outstanding amount due from the connection would be kept unchanged till the connection is restored. He said that the AP Transco has purchased power from outside sources only to the extent of Rs. 61 crores during June as against Rs. 71 crores embarked for the same and added that it did not purchase any power from July onwards.
