Permanent Disconnection (PD) means disconnecting the electricity supply with termination of the agreement and getting no dues certificate (NOC) from the department.
Permanent Disconnection could be categorized in the following three categories:

  • On Request PD - Consumer has requested for terminating the agreement after permanently disconnecting the supply.
    PD date will be the actual disconnection date. Disconnection must be done within 15 days of application.
  • Force PD - If agreement period is over in case of the temporary connection.
    If the cause for which the supply was temporarily disconnected is not removed within six months period.
    PD Date will be after 6 months of temporary disconnection date.
  • No Meter Cable (NMC) at site PD : If no meter cable found at site and no information regarding its temporary disconnection is available. In such cases, PD date will be decided by the appropriate committee through witness and ledger after site inspection
If agreement Period (Generally 2 Years from DOC) is not completed. PD Date will Be the smallest among
  • Last Date of Agreement
  • 6 Months from Date of application
  • Actual Temp Disconnection Date (If Disconnection is done by the department on dues or any other reason)
