While Bangalore is currently a Rs 1500 cr market for gensets, inverters, converters, batteries, emergency lamps, candles, match-sticks, and what have you, these products have a marginal presence in the Mumbai market. Similar is the situation with Ahmedabad, Surat, Kolkata, Greater Noida, etc. And, New Delhi has recently joined them. The essential difference between these cities and Bangalore is that whereas we have the government-owned BESCOM supplying us power, they are all served by companies in the private sector. Need one elaborate more?

I have attended these meetings almost year after year, and raised the very same questions. They have no clear answers. They just indulge in obfuscation. So, don't tell me I didn't warn you.

Whatever, I will continue to attend this time and in future also since my objective in life is to liberate the future generation from the stranglehold of these government dis-service providers.

Bangalore today produces goods and provides services of the highest quality to its clientele right across the globe. For such a city, the interruption-ridden service of BESCOM is nowhere near good enough. For more, read http://karnataka-power-mu...
