Ministry contradicts CEB

May 13, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
The Power and Energy Ministry and the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) today contradicted each other on the need to produce a ‘red notice’ to the consumer before disconnecting the power. Following a complaint by a consumer in Bambalapitiya, the Daily Mirror online contacted the CEB West office in Bambalapitiya who said that the electricity can be discontinued without issuing a red notice. The engineer at the office said that both in Colombo and Kandy the electricity of a consumer can be discontinued without a red notice if the consumer has failed to pay the electricity bill within a period of 30 days. However when contacted by Daily Mirror online, Secretary to the Ministry of Power and Energy M.M.C Ferdinando said it is a violation to discontinue the electricity without issuing a red notice and the consumer had a right to lodge a complaint.   www.dailymirror.lk/index.php/news/3720-ministry-contradicts-ceb.html
