Power Sector Employees Protest against Privatisation of Discoms

Power Sector engineers and employees on Wednesday staged nationwide protests and meetings against privatisation policies of the Central Government and demanded to stop the process of privatisation of discoms in states and Union territories.

In most of the major cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Lucknow thousands of power sector employees and engineers under the banner of the National Coordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers held protest meetings, seeking withdrawal of Electricity Amendment Bill 2021 which may have provisions to privatise discoms and also ease licensing for new discoms in order to increase competition.
