CHITWAN, Nov 20: Energy Minister Janardan Sharma on Sunday directed the employees of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) to make the authority a profitable business.

Saying complaints were coming in about authority employees troubling service seekers in various pretexts and the trend of authority employees asking for bribe, he warned that an action would be taken against those employees troubling service seekers once complaints are lodged with the complaint division of the ministry.

"You should work to make the authority a profitable business, you will be allocated shares of Arun Hydropower," he said.

He also directed the employees to work in line with the 37-point program issued by the ministry.

The authority was preparing to distribute smart meter to its consumers with the view to provide facility to pay electricity bills from home itself, added Minister Sharma. RSS
