माननीय मोदी जी से मेरा एक नम्र निवेदन है कि इस महामारी के दौरान जब पूरे देश में लॉक डाउन हैं तब सरकार को जनता को कुछ रियायत देनी चाहिए इसके लिए सरकार को विद्युत कंपनियों से कहना चाइए के वह आम जनता इस्पीरियड का आधा बिल लेना चाहिए धन्यवाद जय हिन्द

विद्युत की उपलब्धता से अधिक खर्च है।विद्युत कनेक्शन क्षमता में सुधार जरुरी है।सरकारी कार्यालयों में सोलर एनर्जी से बिजलीआपूर्ति की व्यवस्था हो एवं दुरुपयोग से बचाने के लिए कार्यालयों में विद्युत रक्षक की नियुक्ति की जाय।सड़कों के किनारे दिन में भी बिजली जलते रहते हैं।
सुझाव है कि जो सप्लाई करता है वैसे ही ऑफ भी करें।
पावर हाउस की क्षमतानुसार विद्युत कनेक्शन हो।
मोबाईल की तरह पोस्टपेडऔर प्रीपेड बिल पेमेंट की सुविधा हो।
ऐप के माध्यम से लाभुकअपने मीटर को जोड़ेऔर स्वयं भी रीडिंग चेक कर पेमेंट करे।

The power generating cos and also power distribution companies are always facing financial problems and i fail to understand what logic it is to give free electricity to people when it costs the companies to generate power.
my suggestions is to have prepaid system of electricity ,and whichever govt wants to give free electricity ,should pre pay on behalf of consumers to the power distribution companies.

Namaskar Modi Ji , I have to give a suggestion on Electricity that a tagline is ' Save Electricity Save Water And To Save Earth ' .
It means that when we have to save electricity then water is also saved and then Our Earth And Our Lives Is also saved.
