Faridkot, September 6

The Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has asked the School Education Department to clear electricity bills to the tune of Rs 11.93 crore of 433 government schools.

The department has directed the schools to pay the electricity bills before September 8. In case, the schools don’t have enough budget to clear the dues, they have been asked to furnish the details to the department. On September 2, PSPCL Chairman-cum-Managing Director A Venu Prasad wrote to the Secretary, School Education Department, in this regard.

Prasad said an amount of Rs 11.93 crore against various electricity connections of the School Education Department was pending and there was an increasing trend to delay the bills. As the offices concerned were not making requisite efforts to clear the bills, levy of surcharge and interest do not bother them, wrote Prasad.

He apprehended the increasing dues were result of unchecked usage of electricity, air-conditioners, heaters and incandescent bulbs in the schools. — TNS
