88,000 liters oil stolen from over 120 transformers in BSES areas in 18 months

Wednesday, 16 September 2020 | SR | New Delhi

In the last 18 months, around 88,000 liters oil has been stolen from over 120 transformers in BSES areas, the discom official said, adding that of these, around 40 cases are from April 2020.

According to BSES spokesperson, “These incidents of oil theft can cause a lot of inconvenience to the residents. We appeal to our consumers to be vigilant and if they or the colony security guards find anyone suspicious near an electricity substation/transformer, they should check the person’s ID and immediately alert BRPL on 19123 or BYPL on 19122 or call police on 100.

Let us join hands to fight this menace.”

“Removing oil from the transformer has the potential of severely damaging it, besides causing power outages.  Leaking oil from a transformer can also lead to a fire hazard. BSES has taken these incidents very seriously and registered FIRs in various police stations,” the discom said in a statement.
