UP: Multipoint connections made necessary for multistory building residents
"People living in multistory buildings mainly in urban areas and NCR had complained that the builders are taking extra money from them as part of their electricity bills. In name of power backup, the builders ask for around Rs 10-12 per unit," Shrikant Sharma, Power Minister of Uttar Pradesh, told ANI.
"The Yogi Adityanath government is providing appropriate amount of electricity to all in the state. Because of this people now trust the government more. After receiving complaints from users since a long time, last night the concerned department took a good decision as part of which the builders will have to give multi-point connections to their clients as a replacement of single-point connections," he added.
The deadline for the same is March 31, 2019.
