Textile sector protests arbitrary power cuts by Powercom

Jan '11
The Ludhiana industry has raised a strong case before the Punjab State Electricity Regulatory Commissioner (PSERC) regarding the uninformed and unreasonable power cut that the Powercom authorities in the state have imposed on category IV processing units in Ludhiana without any prior intimation. This has caused these units to suffer heavy losses.

Vallabh Textile Co Limited, Nahar Industrial Enterprise Limited and Vardhman Industries Limited – three of the major industrial houses in Ludhiana have forwarded letters to the PSERC authorities urging them to interfere in the matter. These leading industrial houses initially had 66 KV power connections supplied from 220 KV sub-station Sahnewal Ludhiana and procured the power they required through open access.

Vallabh Textile Co. stated that, as the Powercom suddenly imposed the power cut and discontinued power supply to the open access consumers without any intimation, this has caused these open access consumers to incur heavy losses, both in the form of production loss of finished products that are meant for export purpose and financial losses.

Thus, the industrial houses have forwarded a letter to the PSERC Chairman seeking his intervention in the matter to prevent Powercom from adopting discriminatory approach between the general and the open access consumers.
