As per the company, tripping of a single 33/66 KV line can disrupt power supply to over 10,000 consumers and it could take more than two hours to rectify the situation.
Even though, disrupting power supply and causing damage to power equipment is punishable under the Electricity Act and the Delhi Police Act, there seems to be little consideration shown for the law as well as power supply, said BSES.
"In the run-up to the Independence Day, we have put our Operations and Maintenance teams on extra high alert to take care of any kite-flying related contingencies. Elders and parents are also requested to inform and counsel children not to enter prohibited/ barricaded electrical installations to retrieve kites because life is more precious than a mere 10-20 rupee kite. Any carelessness can lead to a major power failure, blackout and even electrocutions," added a BSES official.
