Opposition to Collection of Water Bills by Powercom

Jalandhar citizens are totally opposed to the move by the Govt. to allow Electricity body Powercom to collect water / sewerage Bills from Urban Punjabis.

This is a clever move to further Inspector Raj highhandedness by threatening to disconnect electricity connections for those delaying Water Bills.

Punjab Govt. should ,instead , explain as to why Octroi is being charged in Electricity Bills issued to Paid Urban  Customers of Electricity.

Choongi has been abolished in Punjab and has been substituted by VAT,

Imposing Octroi ( Choongi ) amounts to Double Taxation.

Like in rural areas, Water should be supplied Free of Cost to all Punjabis.
