Oppose the Corporatization of Electricity Boards

28 May 2015
THE Electricity Reforms Bill moved by the Modi government, further speeding up its privatization policies, seeks to hand over supply and distribution networks to separate companies implemented through private competition. It will further cut down the supply of electricity to the economically backward sections with the cutting down of subsidies to them. Meanwhile, the new suppliers shall prefer servicing high value customers in commercially viable areas for getting higher profits. It is another reactionary step to privatize the electricity sector initiated through the bifurcation of production, transmission and services under the Electricity Boards during the last two decades. It is another reactionary move which calls for militant opposition.
