To curtail electricity load, administration bans crude boilers, microme coil & heating devices in Sgr


In a bid to restrain people from putting extra load on the electricity network, which otherwise remains under stress in winters, district administration puts a blanket ban on sale, purchase and transportation of crude boilers, microme coil and other heating devices.

The order in this regard was issued by Deputy Commissioner Srinagar, Syed Abid Rashid. The decision was taken after a review meeting with PDD officials, where the issues were discussed.

“During a review meeting, it was pointed out that during winter’s crude boilers, microme coils etc are used due to which there is unnecessary electricity load on the transformers, reads the order.

Due to this practice, order says “due to heavy load the electric transformers often get damaged and the general public suffers unnecessarily in harsh winters.”

Directing Superintending Engineer, PDD Circle 1st and 2nd Srinagar to ensure strict implementation of the order, it reads “in order to restrain such practices, I District Magisterate, Srinagar hereby impose ban u/s 144 Cr.P.C on sale/purchase/transportation of crude boilers.
