Jail for power theft

Time and again I have posted on this blog expressing my concern about power theft. As per a news item in Times of India of 17.10.2011 (click on the image) a woman has been jailed and fined for stealing power.

Many functions are being organized in Central Park and it is its duty to of PARWA EC to ensure that organizers make proper arrangements for power supply.  It should be ensured that power is not tapped from BSES Feeder box installed in Central Park.

See what the court has said:
"No leniency must be shown to those who steal power, as it directly contributes to power shortage."
"Electricity theft is on the increase. It also causes loss to the state exchequer. The theft of electricity forces the honest consumer to bear with power cuts. Electricity is a national asset."
"deterrent sentence should imposed in case of repeated offenders. No sympathy should be shown to such offenders  otherwise it will be an encouragement to like-minded persons. Such offenders should bear in mind that they will have to face serious consequences, including conviction and imprisonment."

The court has sentence the offender in this case to six months and slapped a steep fine of Rs. 2.76 lakhs.

I have taken some photos showing tapping directly from the BSES feeder box.
