Power Distribution Company BSES has settled over 3,000 power theft cases at Lok Adalats held on Sunday through mutual agreement between parties involved.
The cases were settled at the district courts of Saket, Dwarka and Karkardooma and permanent the Lok Adalat at ITO, a BSES spokesperson said.
The Lok Adalats were held in association with Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA), he said. The paperless Lok Adalats saved around 30,000 standard sised paper sheets, he said. BSES spokesperson said, “The exercise was a win-win for everybody. For the customers, it meant an opportunity to amicably settle their cases and an escape from a prolonged and an expensive legal process. For an over worked judiciary, it meant some burden off their courts,”
The Lok Adalats provided BSES customers residing in South, West, Central and East Delhi, a one-time opportunity to settle their power theft cases on-the-spot, relating to both direct theft and meter tampering,” the official said. BRPL and BYPL are premier power distribution companies and Joint Ventures between Reliance Infrastructure Limited and Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GoNCT).
