In response, all authorized electricity bill payment centers of MSEDCL in Pune district will operate during office hours on Saturday (26th August) and Sunday (27th August) to facilitate prompt payment of both current and overdue electricity bills for consumers. Interestingly, even if the electricity bill is overdue by just one month, disconnection procedures are enforced as per regulations, irrespective of the bill amount.

Within the Pune Regional Division, Pune district comprises 679,378 domestic customers with Rs 134 crore 34 lakh in arrears, 79,418 commercial customers with Rs 45 crore 12 lakh outstanding, and 11,815 industrial customers owing Rs 20 crore 79 lakh.
