SMSes to help Delhi government act against discoms

New Delhi, Jan 10 : Delhiites would now be able to report on unscheduled power cuts through text message which will help the Aam Aadmi Party government take action against the erring discoms.


"If there is an unscheduled power cut in your area, you send us SMS so we can get the data (power cuts). We will take action then," Kejriwal.

Announcing the number - 9223166166 - Kejriwal asked people to send SMS by typing DL POWER and their name and area where outage has occurred.

"We need to take data of both the scheduled and unscheduled power cuts. If the unscheduled power cuts are unreasonable, they will be penalised," Kejriwal told reporters.

There are three power companies in the capital -- BSES Yamuna Power Ltd, BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd. and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd.

Kejriwal has accused power companies of being averse to an audit by the comptroller and auditor general into their financial accounts, recently ordered by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung.
