Draft EA Bill should be taken back : AIPEF

Chandigarh, Nov 22 (UNI) All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) on Monday demanded that the central government should take back the draft Electricity Amendment (EA) Bill 2021and withdraw its decision to privatize power distribution in all the union territories.
The privatization process started in Chandigarh and Dadra Nagar Haveli should also be rolled back.
AIPEF spokesperson VK Gupta said here on Monday that the real objective of the Electricity (Amendment ) bill 2021 is to privatize electricity distribution under the false pretext of giving consumers the choice to choose their distributor with a view to getting cheaper and better service. The electricity distribution will become the monopoly of a particular operator selected to distribute electricity in that particular area. The push to privatization and change in ownership won’t solve any governance or behavioral problems in the power sector.
