    Meghalaya Power company being streamlined: Wahlang

    August 10, 2022 - United News of India


      Shillong, Aug. 10 -- Newly appointed Chief Secretary of Meghalaya, Donald Philips Wahlang on Wednesday said that the cash-strapped Meghalaya Energy Corporation Limited (MeECL) is being streamlined.

      "The process has begun to streamline the corporation and a search committee has been formed to identify a professional to head MeECL," Wahlang, who is also the Chairman cum Managing Director of MeECL, told UNI.

      In fact, the successive government has tried to rope in a technocrat to head and transform the cash-strapped MeECL.

      The MeECL is reeling under debts it owes to central power generation and distribution companies.

      Last week, the Power System Operation Corporation Limited (PSOCL), which monitors and ensures round the clock integrated operation of Indian Power System, directed NEEPCO, NTPC, NHPC and ONGC to reduce electricity sale to MeECL by 25 per cent of the contract quantum from August 7 saying the state-owned power company owes Rs 685.74 crore to power generation companies.

      Wahlang however underplays the notice saying that these are routine matters that GENCOs serve and the issue is resolved by the MeECL.

      "These are usual notice that GENCOs serve from time to time and we are able to manage these issues," he said.
