Ludhiana, December 23, 2013: An urgent meeting of the office-bearer of United Cycle & Parts Manufacturers Association (UCPMA), Ludhiana was held under the presidentship of Charanjit Singh Vishivkarma regarding the revised and increase the power tariff of all the categories of all the connections.
The meeting resolved to strongly criticise the policy of Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd. (PSPCL) to revise and increase the tariff to the tune of 13% which have made the adverse position of the industry.
Vishivkarma said the cycle industry of the city is already reeling under recession due to various reasons as power cuts, non-availability of manpower, inflow of Chinese products and benefits like tax holiday to neighbouring states. He added instead of mitigating the misery of the industry, the state government is going to increase the same.
This has added another problem for them, UCPMA has appealed not to increase the tariff as proposed by (PSPCL), he added.
While on the issue of power cut, this could be avoided by providing power supply after 8pm to big malls and main market of the city, he said, adding the industry as well as the public will remain indebted to the PSPCL & the state government for this noble cause.// ludhiana news online, ludhiana news in English, ludhiana news, ludhiana current news, ludhiana news live, Ludhiana breaking news, Ludhiana headlines, Ludhiana latest news, punjab news, india news, punjab news live, punjab news online, punjab news, punjab news headlines, punjab breaking news, india news, punjab news,
