GBUD (S) opposes pre-paid metering

Reiterating its resolution to oppose the new electricity billing system, the GB Union Dimapur (Sadar) stated that the proposed pre-paid electricity meter lacked “adequate information on the system and its advantages.”
In a press release, GBUD (S) president M Y Ngullie, vice president W Kholie Kapfo and general secretary T Onen Jamir stated that the citizens from different colonies were apprehensive about the billing pattern “which seems to have discrepancy.”
Therefore, until the power department initiates proper sensitization programmes in all the colonies and make the consumers understand the pros and cons of pre-paid billing system, the GBUD affirmed not to cooperate with the installation of pre-paid meter.
