It has come into the notice of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited that at some places in the state, few farmers are trying to make a dent to the image of corporation and also creating pollution in the environment while violating the guidelines of National Green Tribunal. It is informed that a farmer Sh.Jaswinder Singh of Village Toganpur sub division Lalru burnt the stubble at their own after harvesting the wheat and tried to present that the fire was took place due to short circuit
.SDO and JE of the sub division visited the site immediately and collected the evidence . The vested interest of the farmer was to take compensation from PSPCL.
In another case one person from Village Kalomajra near Jansla informed SDO Banur that the wheat crop had caught fire and they controlled the situation but when SDO Banur along with JE and staff reached the location nothing had happened there and no fire incident had taken place .
PSPCL has taken a very serious view of the such incidents. PSPCL has written to the DC and SSP Mohali to take appropriate action against the erring persons.
PSPCL has appealed to the farmers of the Punjab to cooperate and take care of the power infrastructure while the harvesting with combines and also do not set the wheat straw in the fire which leads to environmental pollution and possibility of fear of loss of life / property.Issued by Dy.Secy./Public Relations, PSPCL, PatialaPress Note 51 Dated April 11,2019
