Tata Power Central Odisha Distribution Limited (TPCODL) reiterates its commitment to providing uninterrupted and safe power supply during the famous Baliyatra in Cuttack, beginning on Monday.
The eight-day festival is one of the country’s largest open-air fairs that commemorates the 2,000-year-old maritime and cultural links between ancient Kalinga and Southeast Asia.
As a significant improvement in safety measures, emphasis has been placed on the 11 kV underground cabling, securing the 11 kV overhead network, utilizing insulated cables for the entire LT network, barricading substations and ensuring consumer connections through proper meters with competent manpower, TPCODL said in a press release today. The deployment of three strategically located mobile transformers further enhances the power supply’s resilience during festive periods, it added.
In its commitment to ensuring a reliable power supply, TPCODL has dedicated over 1600 man-days to electrify customer connections. The company has established 10 Fuse Call Centers (FCC) and customer camps operational since November 13, 2023, addressing inquiries and other queries about new connections.
TPCODL has advised consumers to contact 0671-2990227/127 or 1912/1800-345-7122 for any power-related complaints, by providing the counter number, row number and ground.
TPCODL further said that the discom will showcase its various offers and solutions, such as different digital payment modes, new connection offers and safety guidelines, at its stall on the Baliyatra ground.
Speaking on the Baliyatra, TPCODL CEO Arvind Singh said, “Our firm commitment to safety ensures that this Baliyatra is both joyful and exceptionally secure for all. We wholeheartedly encourage the public to procure authorized electricity connections and diligently adhere to safety protocols.”
