Consumer questions Bescom over indiscriminate pruning of trees

Consumers vent ire at Bescom meet
Times of India

Bangalore: The Bescom authorities saw anguish blowing in from all directions at an open house meet with consumers on Thursday. “In the previous meeting (January 2003) Bescom had promised consumers would be consulted in case of pruning of trees. That has not happened,’’ said Suresh, a resident of Jayanagar. To that managing director of Bescom, Bharat Lal Meena, replied, “We will have to work that out with the BCC and Forest department.’’

Many others complained of intermittent power supply, voltage fluctuations, snapping of power and discrepancies in billing. However, most queries ended with just one assurance from the Bescom officials: “We’ll look into it.”
