The Mahavitaran (MSEDCL), after considering the deadly aftereffects of unauthorized power connections, has appealed the Ganesh Mandals and Durga Utsav Mandals to get authorized electricity connections to avoid any untoward incident.
The MSEDCL has warned the Mandals of dangers associated with the illegal power connections. Hundreds of devotees turn up at the religious places to have a “Darshan” of the Almighty. And are also in hazardous situations of fatality or a disaster like fire due to illegal power connections. The Ganesh Mandals and Navaratri Utsav Mandals should visit the MSEDCL website www.mahadiscom.in for online applications for new power connections for the festivities. The online applications must be attached with Application A-1 Forms, No Objection Certificates and Test Report of Power Connections from the local competent authorities/local police officials. The power connections would be provided within 3 days after completing all the formalities and the entire payment of the required amount.
The MSEDCL has cautioned the Mandals which neglect the MSEDCL’s appeal and take illegal power connections. The MSEDCL’s Damini Squad would visit such Mandals and urge them to take authorized power connections to avoid any untoward incidents. Even then the Mandals refuse legal connections the MSEDCL will immediately cut off the power supply and actions will be taken according to the rules, the MSEDCL has said in press release.
