Power sector working with 4 innovative ideas for hassle free service

The country’s power sector is working with four innovative ideas to provide quick, hassle free and digital services to the consumers.

“These innovative ideas would resolve problems in the power sector and ensure quick, hassle free and digital service to the electricity clients,” Prime Minister’s Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Affairs Advisor Dr Towfir-e-Elahi Chowdhury, Bir Bikram, said on Sunday.

Addressing a function here on the occasion of the first ever National Public Service Day-2017, as the chief guest, he said four companies including Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) introduced the innovative projects to reach service to the doorsteps of all consumers.

Regarding the recent power shortage in the country as a national power grid broke due to cyclone, he said the government should always be ready to take mitigation measures considering risks in the power sector.

“The power sector officials should conceive innovative ideas, discover themselves with more advanced initiatives and get engaged in the service to the clients to ensure better future of the nation,” the advisor said.

Chaired by power division secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus, the programme was also addressed by Senior Secretary of the Public Administration Ministry Dr M Mozammel Haq Khan as the special guest.

Dr Khan said as the Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry is one of the keys to the overall progress, the consumers’ right must be protected in this sector along with making the electricity billing system more transparent.

Replying to a query about availability of prepaid meter card on electricity Dr Kaikaus said the prepaid card would be available in seven days a week, now available in five days while two days remain closed due to weekly holidays.

He said the power division organised the function marking the National Public Service Day-2017 aimed at making the power division’s works people friendly.

Speakers said that the government fixed its target to reach power generation capacity to 24,000 MR in 2021, 40,000 MW in 2030 and 60,000 MW in 2041.

They said now the power generation capacity reached to 15, 379 MW and 80 percent people are getting electricity facility across the country. The foremost goal of the government is to achieve the sustainable development goal by 2030.
