On Saturday afternoon, I created a mission sheet for the DISCOM
Emergency Action Center (our 24-hour operations center) so that they would be aware of every detail of the mission.
Summary: The new scheme to clean up the mess in discoms is not stringent enough.
The traditional linear battlefield division rear command post, which is a combination of the DISCOM
headquarters, the division materiel management center, the division medical operations center (DMOC), and a large slice of division staff (G-1, G-4, combat support, and CSS elements).
assumed a risk during this period by concentrating its resources on maintaining the equipment of customer units and deferring maintenance on its organic equipment.
headquarters and headquarters company redesign pulls the majority of logistics support personnel from the maneuver brigades and infuses them into the DISCOM
As of now, the participating DISCOMs
have to issue Bonds worth approximately Rs.
However, my proposal includes changes in the DISCOM
MMC and SPO and in the FSB support operations office at the maneuver brigade level.
Discussions with the three discoms were on for nearly six months and they have agreed.
In the past five years, the performance of discoms has only deteriorated, with accumulated losses at a staggering Rs 3.
Power Minister Satyender Jain took strong note of the long power cuts and directed the discoms to take urgent measures to ensure round the clock power supply.
The power users will have to pay this additional burden every month, especially during the summer months when the power generation dips alarmingly in the state and the Discoms heavily depend on the purchase of power from other state and private power generation companies.
The discoms have strongly been pitching for a hike in power tariff, arguing that cost of power in the open market as well as cost of distribution has increased significantly in the last one year.
