To cater to the demands of the upcoming festival season, two power distribution companies (discoms) in the national capital -- BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd -- will install "Tatkal", or immediate, electricity connections for both community and private festivities, BSES said on Wednesday.

"BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) will provide 'Tatkal' electricity connections for pujas, pandals and marriages etc.," a BSES statement here said.

"Under the innovative scheme, a consumer will be able to get a temporary connection the same day of applying and completing the commercial formalities. Usually, it can take between three-five days to get a temporary connection," it said.

According to BSES, to get a "tatkal" temporary electricity connection, a consumer has to contact its call centre numbers 39999707 (BRPL) and 39999808 (BYPL), or visit the customer care centre at the division office and complete simple formalities. They can also apply online and make payment for the temporary connection on the company website www.bsesdelhi.com.

"The entire BSES machinery is geared up to make "same day" connections possible," the statement said.

BSES also cautioned that incidences of power theft increase during the festival season.

"BSES' teams will be on high alert to catch such transgressions. Consumers are requested to take legal 'temporary' connections for all their celebrations," the discom said.
