DNMUM247310 | 6/16/2012 | Author : DNA Correspondent | WC :244

If you experience a power outage or any other power-related issue this monsoon, just call the helpline number created for specifically such problems, get your complaints heard immediately and expect swift action.
In the pre-monsoon rains that the city witnessed a few days ago, some areas in Navi Mumbai witnessed power cuts and electricity problems. In light of this, executive engineer SB Kachre from Vashi Circle, said, "These are existing helpline numbers that citizens can avail but the civic body has launched special numbers during the rainy months when there are greater chances of frequent breakdowns and electricity problems. Every call will be answered."
The helpline numbers will enable citizens to enquire about the status of the problem and when electricity will be resumed. Vashi, Nerul and Panvel Circle in Navi Mumbai will each have their independent helpline numbers on which enquiries can be made.
Each helpline number will have a mobile van, one engineer and the staff of the particular division on standby, who will reach the spot in case of emergencies. In the three months of the monsoon, these mobile vans will be put on high alert. Airoli, Ghansoli, Rabale, Koparkhairane and Vashi areas fall under Vashi circle while Sanpada, Nerul and CBD Belapur come under the Nerul circle. The remaining locations come under Panvel circle.
"Each and every problem will be attended to by our officials," said Kachre.
The helpline numbers are:
Vashi - 2788 6755, 99302 68499
Nerul- 2770 1930
Panvel- 2745 2400, 99302 69662
