The applicant will also be able to track the status of his/her application online by entering relevant details.

Officials said that the facility will be available to all types of consumers in urban as well as rural areas — for domestic, commercial, industrial and agricultural categories — with prepaid and postpaid payment facilities. As on March 31, there were 2,59,316 (urban and rural) domestic consumers in the district, 25,774 consumers having commercial connections and 9,541 industrial consumers registered with PVVNL.

At present, those seeking power connections have to visit the discom office and there have been allegations of arm-twisting by unscrupulous officials of the power department by many consumers.

Mukul Singhal, superintending engineer, Gautam Budh Nagar, said,”The online facility for getting an electricity connection will be a great relief to consumers. This will also bring transparency in the system.”
