NEA stops power supply to two more industries

KATHMANDU: Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has cut off power supply to two more industries, reasoning that they failed to clear tariff for the dedicated and trunk lines.

The Parasi Distribution Centre of NEA cut off electricity to Sarbottam Cement and Laxmi Steel. The NEA informed that Sarbottam has dues of Rs 850 million while of Laxmi Steel Rs 620 million. Earlier, the NEA had stopped electricity supply to four industries for the same reasons.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal had directed the NEA to stop power to the non-abiding industries and companies. He had asked the NEA to collect tariffs by disrupting the electricity supply.

The NEA was facing criticism that it was disrupting power only to small industries while letting the big ones go scot free. The authority had stopped supply to Jagadamba Cement, Reliance Spinning Mills, Ghorahi Cement and Arghakhanchi Cements. They had been ignoring the request to clear the dues. RSS
