A protest against BSES tariff hike was carried on July 12 at BSES office in F block, Krishna Nagar. A number of RWAs and traders from various parts of east Delhi participated in the protest. It was supported by the BJP. MLA Dr Harshvardhan, councillors Dr V K Monga, Neema Bhagat and Nirmal Jain addressed the public.
Dr Harshvardhan informed that the technical and commercial losses of Discoms have come down from 57% maximum to around 14 - 20%. Dr Monga said that the deposits made to BSES will not be a security deposit but permanent fixed deposits in their hands. BS Vohra, president East Delhi RWAs Joint Front raised various factual points on all the three issues i.e. tariff revision, additional security deposit and variable charge collection plans of BSES. "We request the DERC to opt for the CAG audit so that the actual position of these Discoms could come into open," said Vohra.
