Electricity problem in Royal Tower leaves residents in limbo

Ghaziabad: The electricity problem at Royal Tower, Shipra Suncity, Indirapuram has left residents in fear and uncertainty.

The residents allege that after having taken the electricity bill of the residents of the royal tower, the company “BM services” did not deposit it in the electricity company PVVNL for nearly 10 months. As a result, the Electricity Corporation cut the electricity 10 to 15 times from February 27 to September 29, 2021. According to the Electricity Corporation, there is a balance owing of 19 lakhs for the Royal Tower company.

The company had promised to deposit the full amount by November 30, 2021, but broke its promise. Now company officials have stopped picking up the phone. In such a situation, the inhabitants fear that the company ‘PVVNL’ will permanently cut off the electricity.

Abhishek Srivastav, a resident of Royal Tower, says: “We have been facing electricity problems for so long. The power company still promises to fix the problem but still fails to deliver it. We need a permanent solution to this problem.

Atul Srivastava, President of RWA, Royal Tower, said: “The power supply is provided by BM Services, a subsidiary of Shipra Estate Limited. Local residents paid BM Services for electricity. The company has not given the electricity money deposited by residents to the power company in the past 10 months. “

He informed that after the RWA inquired about this from the company, they learned that Rs 32 lakh was owed to the Electricity Corporation. Because of this, the power was repeatedly cut off. After that, the RWA spoke with officials from Shipra Suncity. They signed a buffer paper agreement to deposit the full amount in Electricity Corporation by November 30, 2021. The company deposited Rs 13 lakh by November 30, this too after continued pressure. However, he still owes Rs 19 lakh.

“Now if I try to contact the people in charge of the company, they don’t even speak, they don’t answer phone calls. It is clear that they used the electricity money elsewhere. The company gives false assurances to people. Srivastava said.

CitySpidey also attempted to contact power company officials but they did not respond.
