Guwahati: Based on the directive from the Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, the Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL) has urged the state government to release the salaries of its employees for June only if they clear their electricity bills.

The APDCL managing director in a letter dated June 13, 2021, has urged the government to instruct all Drawing and Disbursing Officers (DDO) to ensure the collection of “No dues payable against Electricity bill of APDCL” certificates for all employees before processing salary bills on or before June 30.”

“APDCL system generated payment receipt of current electricity bill may be considered as proof of payment for this purpose,” the letter issued by the Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL) stated further.

Earlier, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma during a meeting at the Bijulee Bhawan stated that power theft by a segment of the state’s consumers costs the APDCL about 300 crores each month. This results in an increase in power tariffs, which affects honest power consumers.
