Bangla Hunt Desk: In the border areas of Jammu and Kashmir, the soldiers are risking their lives to protect the motherland and the countrymen. They are always ready for an attack from the enemy. But the 181st Battalion of the CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) deployed in Badgam district was not prepared for the sudden power outage.
For the past few days, ordinary people have been at risk of fake CESE bills in Kolkata. Many were shocked to see the electricity bill equal to the mountain in the lockdown. Although the general public has been temporarily relieved of this problem, this time the power outage has occurred in the border area itself.
CRPF's electricity bill
The electricity bill of CRPF's 161st Battalion in Jammu and Kashmir is Rs 1.5 crore. The Power Department of Jammu and Kashmir (PDD) has sent a bill of Rs. At first it seems to be a mistake, but then the mistake is corrected. The bill contains this huge amount of electricity bill written in clear English letters.
How come so many bills?
Though the Jammu and Kashmir police are said to be settling the bill, discussions have started on how a battalion can come up with such a huge electricity bill. Surprisingly, the bill states that this battalion has consumed 50 kilowatts of electricity, which is worth one and a half thousand rupees. But the authorities are not able to match the bill of Rs 1.5 crore. Meanwhile, the last date for submission of bills has been said to be August 28.
What did the power department say?
CESE ADG Zulfiqar Hasan said, ‘Such a bill is never possible. There must have been a mechanical problem somewhere. We could not even contact the power department as it was a weekend holiday.
