Maharastra State Electricity Board is the worst Electricity Board ever. This could easily be an understatement. I am a resident of Vasai, Evershine City, which is one of the better populated & well maintained townships in Vasai (E). Though Vasai has come a long way in terms of infrastructure because of which the population has increased rapidly in the past few years, the Electricity here is still a cause of concern.
MSEB, without fail cuts electricity for 5 hours each day i.e. 35 hrs a week, not to mention the unaccounted times when there is no electricity for 30mins to 2 hrs during the day or night which has absolutely no fixed time. This issue has been prevailing for the past so many years & its getting worst each year.
The load shedding, as it is termed, is causing so much of inconvenience to the residence of this part of the city. Not every one can afford expensive equipment like the investors. The shopkeepers also suffer due losses because of these power cuts.
Innumerable complaints, mochas, etc have been made, but it looks like it all falls into deaf ears of MSEB. There has to be a limit to these load shedding. If there is shortage of electricity, then why only this part of the city suffers? There are no powers cuts in Mumbai limits. Its so unfair cause we do not even have a choice. MSEB is all we have.
So many people have migrated to this part of the city because the development it’s shown in the past few years, thanks to the reputed builders who have had their projects here. But in spite of all this, it feels like living in some rural part of the country where electricity is such an issue. A family cannot even enjoy a weekend because MSEB does not even spare Saturdays & Sundays for their load shedding escapade.
This needs to stop. It’s absolutely unfair to people who live here because this is not the lifestyle they expected when they moved in here. Electricity is a necessity not a luxury & this is not asking for more. MSEB is answerable to the 35 to 40 hrs a week load shedding. We too deserve to live a peaceful life here without any inconvenience caused to our children due to these load shedding.
