Rural people happy as electricity reaches door steps

Rural people in Khulna are happy as electricity has reached their door steps, making their lives easier.

Consumers of Khulna villages do not need to hang around behind the officers and employees of Khulna Palli Biddyut Samity (Rural Electricity Samity) of Khulna.

Employees of the Samity are now going to consumers’ doors with a mobile van-car decorated a banner ‘Alor Feriwala, Matro 5-10 minute-e Biddut Sanjog, Khulna Palli Biddut Samity’, Peddler of light, Electricity connection within 5 to 10 minutes, Khulna Rural Electricity Samity.’

While visiting Senerbazar area under Rupsha upazila in Khulna on Wednesday this reporter found that employees of the Biddyut Samity knocked different houses and asked them to take electricity connection if they did not get it earlier.

Talking to BSS, Mahmud Hassan, an employee of Pally Biddyut Samity of Sener Bazar Zonal Office, said, “We connect electricity within 5 to 10 minutes after taking government fees.”

“Consumers do not need to hang around our office for electricity connection. No extra charges are being taken from them,” he added.

Amzad Mia, a farmer, who got new electricity connection last month, said, “I did not face any harassment or give them any extra charge to get new electricity connection,”

Senior General Manager of Khulna Pally Biddyut Samity Shahiduzzaman told BSS that they are providing electricity connections to consumers under the scheme.

General Manager of the Samity Engineer Zulfiqar told BSS, “We initiated ‘Alor Ferrywala’ service on January 06, 2018 with a view to provide better services to our consumers.”

“Consumers are getting electricity connection after paying only Tk 965 to the government. We have not received any complain from consumers,” he said, adding that the service would continue till hundred percent electricity coverage is not completed.

A total of six upazilas have been brought under full electricity coverage last year while 59 unions and two pourasavas of remained three upazilas in the district have been brought under 80 percent coverage, he said.

Out of 2, 62,811 consumers, two lakh people under four zonal offices of Pally Biddyut Samity have been brought under electricity coverage, he said, adding that remained consumers will get this benefit by June, 2019.
