After Single-Phase and Three-Phase Meters shortage, LESCO is out of 25 kilovolts (kV) transformers and TOU meters for industrial consumers.
LESCO company has not a single unit of 25 kV transformers anymore. Instead of purchasing the new equipment and improving the procurement, the department has devised a new policy to outsource it.
Now, all industrial consumers have to purchase the transformers through LESCO’s designated vendors at an increased price.
Before this policy, LESCO used to provide 25 kV transformer at the price of 300k (3 Lac) which is now at a price of 500k (5 Lac) or more.
You’re dependent now on the third-party vendors which means more corruption and more low quality.
Process to Purchase a New 25 kV Transformer for Industrial Consumers
- First of all, after application for 25 kV, you will be issued an NOC which will be an approval paper that you can purchase it.
- 2. When you are done with purchasing of the transformer, PPMC will do an inspection beforehand the deployment of transformers.
- 3. Once the inspection is successful, they will issue the clearance certificate and you can install your newly purchased transformer.
