GURUGRAM. The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has threatened to have the project permits of 25 housing societies in the new areas along the Dwarka Expressway canceled if their developers don’t establish a stable connection in the next two weeks.
The insufficient electrical infrastructure and absence of a reliable connection within the society make societies heavily dependent on diesel generators.
Due to improper electric infrastructure, and lack of a good connection, these societies depend upon diesel generators.
Gurugram: Power infrastructure deficient
The discom has asked DTCP not to issue the occupational certificate (OC) as well as completion certificates (CC) and renew the project licenses of the 25 societies.
The discom has also been saying not to provide power connections to projects not owned by that same developer.
DHBVN officials told the media that these societies are running on temporary connections and diesel generators taken at the construction time.
Despite collecting money from buyers, their developers have failed to build the infrastructure as per the sanctioned electrical plan of this project.
We have given them two weeks to get a stable connection, failing which we will take suitable action, including registration of FIRs and cancellation of licenses of the Developers.

Some officials said that, in reality, the 220 kV substation that was constructed in Sector 95 to meet the power requirements of new residents of the sector has been inactive for some time because these 25 developers haven’t yet completed the construction of the electrical infrastructure for both internal and external use.
The Discom wrote in a letter sent to the developers earlier in the week. Your conduct violates your legal obligation and responsibilities to your customers as you have already charged your customers for supplying electrical infrastructure, and this negligence on your part to fulfill the same is entirely unacceptable.
25 Societies May Lose Licenses
Without an adequate electricity supply, the project was sold, and possession was given.
It is clear that what was done by wrongdoers is a violation of trust DHBVN declared that they reserve the right to initiate appropriate regulatory proceedings”.
“The DHBVN may request the Development of Town and Country Planning to cancel the project license for non-compliance according to the terms and conditions which include providing basic electrical infrastructure to the societies, including setting up a 33-kilowatt switching station and external electrical work.
Officials of Dakshin Bijli Vitran Nigam Haryana explained that they had contacted the DTCP to ensure that the developers who are not in compliance receive an official NOC from the department so that they can be granted an Occupational Certificate or Completion Certificate as well as any other approval for their plans.
Moreover, new connections to any other project of these developers will be issued only after completing the necessary electrical infrastructure in these societies.
