Punjab State Electricity Board ( PSEB ) on Strike Today

Today , there was not any power cut in Jalandhar.

Punjab State Electricity Board has become a victim of partisan policies of Government where by Paid Urban consumers get the bills and rural landlords get FREE electricity. Such non business like policies have landed PSEB in complete mess.

Either Government should run PSEB on business lines or it should give FREE electricity to ALL and treat all the expenditure incurred by PSEB as Government expenditure to be provided for budgetary support ( like Shagun ,and other welfare Schemes  ).

. It is the deadly mix of business and selective welfare policies which has  ruined PSEB..An institution like PSEB can either be run on Corporate lines or as a Govt. Charitable Trust.  NOT BOTH
