Kathmandu, October 9
The government-run electricity distributor, Nepal Electricity Authority, has begun signing performance contract with key staff across the country in its bid to control power leakage during the distribution process.
The Authority’s Managing Director Kul Man Ghising signed the contract with Nepalgunj regional office Chief Manoj Kumar Singh during a function in Nepalgunj of Banke district yesterday. At the same function, the Authority’s Distribution and Consumer Service Directorate’s Deputy Executive Director Hararaj Neupane exchanged the contract with chiefs of 16 distribution centres.
Minister for Energy Barsha Man Pun and the Ministry Secretary Anup Upadhyaya were also present at the function.
The Authority says it has extended the contract system to other places after an experiment at Biratnagar office last year proved successful. In the first phase, the Authority will sign contracts with chiefs of eight distribution centres.
Whereas the power leakage was 20.45 per cent last year, the Authority has intended to restrict it to 11.65 per cent this year.
