A surge in demand for power has triggered the rate of complaints, forcing Cesc to take a call.

Chamundi, a round the clock emergency mobile service unit was launched by minister Shobha Karandlaje. For now, the emergency unit is restricted to T Narsipur taluk alone in the district.

Taking a cue from similar units under Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) that has yielded good results, it has been replicated in Mysore district, but on an experimental basis in T Narsipur.

The unit, comprising six Tata Sumo jeeps allotted to equal number of stations in the taluk, is equipped with men and materials. 

The jeeps are fitted with GPS to keep track of the men on the move. Four more stations in the same taluk will be shortly covered. Another new is, Divisional Office for Meter Examination at Jyotinagar in the city.

The unit has incorporated foreign technology to repair the meters. Earlier, the meters were manually repaired and a maximum of 10 meters could be attended to in one hour. The new technology has made the job easy with dedicated staff repairing 40 to 50 meters in an hour.
