Consumer power rests on knowing your rights. You may remember cursing Bescom when there was a 21-hour power outage on April 29 and 30 last year. But this 73-year-old man did something more - he found out there is a provision for consumers to get compensation if power supply is interrupted beyond certain hours.

I spoke to Mr Ram on seeing the report. He says that the present order covers only the 7 applicants, and the one specific incident. He has now requested the KIC to widen the coverage to automatically include all such future occurances and all consumers.

Way to go, Sir!

A compensation is also paid if electronic equipment in your home is blown due to a surge in voltage.
