Unfair jump in Nandan seat fare

Power ploys

While the city and its suburbs reel under extensive power cuts in summer, streetlights are on even during the day. The CESC is extremely concerned with power pilferage, but it doesn’t bother to pay attention to the huge quantity of power wasted in this way. Moreover, the authorities concerned neglect the upkeep of light posts and switch boxes. Most electric fixtures are exposed to rain and heat, which damage the wiring and cause short circuits. There should be regular supervision to ward off accidents.
