Electricity dues must be paid, no exemption: NEA

KATHMANDU: The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has urged the consumers who had consumed electricity from dedicated feeder and trunk line in the past and now faced power supply disruption to come to the appeal process.

The NEA has made it clear that there was no option for the consumers but to come to the appeal process or clear the dues on an installment basis.

At a press conference here today, NEA Executive Director Kulman Ghising insisted that waiver could not be given in the context when directive was already issued to clear dues from dedicated feeder and trunk line users after cutting off the electricity supply line.

Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ had instructed the NEA to collect electricity tariff dues.

The NEA cannot do anything in this regard as exemption was not possible, Ghising said, urging the entrepreneurs concerned to come to the process by depositing certain amount in the review committee under the NEA.

Following the PM’s directives, the NEA has cut off electricity lines of some iconic industries. The business and industry community has expressed concern following disruption of electricity line.

Earlier, the NEA issuing public notices had requested the consumers of industry, business and non-business groups for clearance of electricity dues with premier amount.

The NEA has started cutting off electricity supply line since last December 26 as per the electricity transmission and electricity tariff regulations after the consumers ignored the payment of dues.
