MeECL Meghalaya: Defaulters to be left without power supply

Prosecution proceedings against those consumers who have failed to settle their dues under the scheme.

The Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) will soon start disconnecting power connections of defaulting consumers.

This came with the lapse of the One Time Settlement Scheme 2020 extended to all categories of defaulting consumers (including permanently disconnected consumers) to recover long outstanding dues of electricity bills, which expired on March 31.

“Therefore, a general notice as per the relevant provisions of the MSERC (Electricity Supply Code) Regulations, 2018 is hereby issued to all the defaulting consumers informing that with effect from 16th April, 2021, the MePDCL shall commence rigorous electricity disconnection drive under section 56 of the Electricity Act, 2003 against all defaulting consumers not enrolled/opted for this Scheme (including consumers who opted the Scheme but failed to comply with the terms of the Scheme),” the CMD, MePDCL said in a statement on Monday.

The CMD also said this notice shall be treated as Notice for disconnection to all defaulting consumers of the MePDCL. The list of defaulters is available at the website of the MeECL

“There shall also be prosecution proceedings against those consumers who have failed to settle their dues under the scheme or otherwise,” the statement added.
