This is Rajinder Singh s/0 S. Gurnaam Singh from Bhogpur, Distt - Jalandhar Punjab. My complaint is regarding installation of meter at my place at Bhogpur-Bholath road.
I have applied for an application for installing meter at my place at Bhogpur-Bholath road, but I am not at all getting proper response from any of the concerned authorities. There are two division in my area(Bhogpur), but they both are not at all ready to listen and help me on this. If I am going to JE of division - 1(Joginderpal singh), he is asking me to go to JE of division - 2(Som Nath) and when I am going to division 2 they are asking me to go to division 1. No one is ready to install meter at my place and indirectly they are just asking for some kind of bribe. None of them is ready to actually help us on this and why these people are there on duty if they are not working properly.
I would like to explain you the whole scenario that is happening with me from the day 1 when I first time applied for meter. I applied for the meter first time on july 8th 2015(07/08/2015) and according to rules, meter should be installed with in one month of duration from the day we will apply for it. but its september 1st 2015 today and no one is ready to take any action on this.
There is LT line connection at my place area and for that some people from power board asked me to submit Rs 13900 for shifting some cable(96 meters), and I have given that amount to them. And even after that JE Som Nath was asking for some more amount of money(Rs 6000 extra), but he did not tell why he needs that money and he told he wont give me any reciept for that. Still I gave that amount also to him and then he shifted that Lt cable but out of totaln 96 meter cable, 10 meter cable was left(because actual distance from pole to pole was only 72 meters) and he did not give that cable back to us, when we demanded for that he said no I cant give you this cable back, but in real we are owner of that becasue we have only paid for that cable.
After that again I had submitted Rs 6946 for meter installation on july 8th 2015 at division no 2 Bhogpur. Again Both JEs(Som Nath and Joginderpal Singh) visited our site but again they are not ready to do anything, instead of that they are just misleading us and asking for bribe. When JE Som Nath from Division 2 came to our site and now he is asking us to give 72000 Rs, dont know why he is asking for Rs 72000 just for installing one meter, I would like to know, In our punjab, for installing one meter, cost is mearly Rs 1 lakh? I have very big question on that.
Already supply from division 1 is going to our area but they are denying only for us. There is one place near by our place where we want to install the meter, there is supply from division 1 and meter num for that place is 27/860 and one more meter is there near by my place, there is also same supply from division 1, and meter num is 880 over there. Then why they are asking for this much big amount from me to install a meter at my place(Bhogpur - Bholath Road).
I have complained all this to SDO also but I am surprised he is did not listen to our concerns and also not ready to help us on this.
I would like to request to Punjab power board to consider all my above concerns and points and help us in installing the meter at my place and give justice to me. Please consider all the points and let us know why they are asking for bribe if they are getting proper salary from government already. Please take strict action against all this and help us in installing meter as soon as possible.

Looking forward for your reply and action on this!
