The summer in Delhi, seems to be over atlast. The peak summer is the acid test for the Electric Power Transmission companies in Delhi. And this year Tata Power owned North Delhi Power Limited [NDPL] has done much better than Reliance owned Bombay Suburban Electric Supply [BSES]. While the BSES served areas went without power for hours together, NDPL served areas were never without power for more than a few minutes.
People also complained of poor response from BSES customer care centers. While people who had to deal with NDPL were a happier and satisfied lot.
And when i happened to visit the BSES office a couple of days ago to register a complaint, i heard a BSES employee cribbing about how badly BSES treated them as compared to how NDPL treats it’s staff. He was telling his colleagues that NDPL had given Titan watches to all it’s employees. And NDPL was also offering an interest free loan to all it’s employees to buy Tata Indicas and Indigos.
Reliance was busy deciding which brother gets Papa’s watch and which brother gets papa’s car. And so the employees were getting nothing. Else i could have had a better and cooler summer 😉
