One of Delhi's power distributors, BSES has claimed about Rs 25 lakh daily revenue loss due to power theft by e-rickshaw owners while proposing the need to have a institutional mechanism for charging batteries of these electric vehicles.
In its letter addressed to both Delhi government and Union transport ministry, the discom has given details of 26 localities where the practice of illegal tapping of electricity to charge battery is rampant. These include OkhlaVihar, Batla House, SangamVihar, DakshinPuri, Matiyala, Mahavir Enclave, Tihar Village, Tilak Nagar, Uttam Nagar and Bindapur.
Sources said the discom has highlighted how in the absence of proper charging stations and metering mechanism, the crisis will get bigger and hence there is a need to find a way out. It has also sought the details of registered e-rickshaws from the government.
Though for the past 2-3 years, both Centre and Delhi government have talked about the need to expedite proper charging facilities for electric vehicles across the country, nothing much has happened.
