Direct Tapping and Unmetered Connections

Direct Tapping

Direct tapping of power by non-customers is widely prevalent. This is mainly in domestic and agricultural categories. Geographical remoteness, mass basis for theft, poor law enforcement capability and inaction on the part of utility are helping this phenomenon.

Unmetered Connections

In many States, power supply to the agricultural sector and some categories of domestic consumers are not metered and charged on a flat rate basis. This poses problems in arriving at reasonably correct estimates of consumption in these categories resulting in losses.
