150 Ardee residents protest at midnight against power cuts
We have fought a long battle with the developer over power cuts. The developer got 5MW load sanctioned for the initial population 20 years ago. Now, population has grown four to five times. The developer has to install a substation but has been ignoring it for three years.

GURUGRAM: Repeated and long hours of power cuts in Ardee City forced residents to protest outside the developer’s complaint centre on Tuesday midnight.


Over 150 residents gathered outside the complaint centre after the power went off around 9.45pm on Tuesday.
Over 150 residents gathered outside the complaint centre after the power went off around 9.45pm. Protesters included, children and elderly, who stood their ground outside the complaint office of Ardee Infrastructure Private Limited till 4am. Power supply was restored by 8am.

Residents has heated arguments with the men at complaint centre. The residents shouted slogans also against the Ardee developer and the officials of Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) which has failed to give them direct connections.

“Residents created a ruckus in the night for no reason. The situation is not as bad as they claim. I will not say anything else in this regard,” Ardee Infra general manager Chandan Kumar said.

Meanwhile, residents said Ardee personnel at the complaint centre told them that they have been asked to do load shedding.

“Ten-hour-long load shedding is not justified and we believe the developer is harassing us intentionally. We pay DHBVN bills and we pay the maintenance charge to the developer,” Dr Isha Sharma, a resident, said.

The Ardee City residents’ welfare association (RWA) has called a meeting to appeal to the DHBVN to provide them direct electricity connections. At present, the DHBVN has given a

single-point connection to the developer which further distributes it among residents at a rate of its choosing.

“We have fought a long battle with the developer over power cuts. The developer got 5MW load sanctioned for the initial population 20 years ago. Now, the population has grown four to five times. The developer has to install a substation but has been ignoring it for the past three years. That is why we have

applied for direct connections from the DHBVN,” RWA president Praveen Yadav said.

The DHBVN has considered the residents’ appeal of direct electricity connections.

DHBVN superintending engineer KC Aggarwal said, “Ardee City’s problem is lack of infrastructure. Meanwhile, we have received request from residents for direct connections. The DHBVN is considering their request.
