Electricity connections for industries in a week

The government is planning to provide electricity connections to industrial within a week subject to submission of necessary documents.

“We are now providing electricity connections to industrial units of local and foreign investors within 28 days. The time can be reduced to a week only if we receive the necessary documents from them,” Dhaka Power Distribution Company Ltd (DPDC) managing director Bikash Dewan said.

He said the investors must submit electrical license, fire safety license, environmental and land ownership licenses to get new electricity connections.

But most of the investors fail to provide these required documents, which causes the delay in getting the electricity connections, he also said.

At a meeting on December 05, state minister for power, energy and mineral resources Nasrul Hamid said they would be able to provide high voltage electricity connections (HT) within two days.  “We will require access the database of the consumers to provide quick electricity connections,” he said.

The DPDC is now providing electricity to 12.18 lakh consumers, the DPDC chief informed, adding that 5,000 industrial customers consume around 40 per cent of DPDC’s total electricity supply.

The government is now working to ensure speedy power supply to investors with the support of the Board of Investment. The government is targeting to increase the volume of power supply to 24,000MW by 2021 and to 60,000MW by 2040.
