Pune, 21st November 2023: In line with the directives from Deputy Chief Minister and Minister of Energy New and Renewable Energy Devendra Fadnavis, the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has initiated a statewide drive to swiftly replace damaged or burnt transformers. To expedite this process, MSEDCL is seeking the cooperation of local citizens in promptly reporting burnt transformers.
In instances where transformers are damaged or burnt, the disruption in power supply inconveniences villagers. To address this issue, MSEDCL is urging citizens to report transformer failures without delay. Citizens can contact the toll-free numbers 1800-212-3435 or 1800-233-3435 or reach out to the executive engineer at the Mandal level to provide information about burnt transformers.
Efforts have been made by MSEDCL to streamline the replacement process by promptly supplying transformer oil and maintaining a stock of repaired transformers. The replacement and repair progress is monitored daily at the headquarters level, resulting in transformers being replaced within a maximum of three days after receiving information about the breakdown.
However, the challenge lies in the delay in realizing when a transformer is burnt, leading to a longer delay in restoring the power supply. MSEDCL is appealing to electricity consumers to play an active role in overcoming this challenge by promptly reporting burnt transformers through the provided toll-free numbers or contacting the relevant executive engineer.
Additionally, citizens can use WhatsApp to report burnt transformers by sharing photos and location details on the designated numbers for Pune Rural Division (7875767021), Rasta Peth Division (7875767015), and Ganeshkhind Division (7875767010). The collaborative effort between MSEDCL and electricity consumers aims to expedite the replacement of burnt transformers, ensuring a swift restoration of the power supply.
