TS Gopalkrishnan started this petition to KPTCL Karnataka

BESCOM is the distributing arm of KPTCL Karnataka, supplying electricity to urban and rural Bangalore.

BESCOM is grossly inefficient in managing electricity supply to consumers. Their equipment are either totally obsolete or not properly maintained. At the first few drops of rain in Bangalore, BESCOM immediately switches off the power. There is no limit as to how long this power outage will last. It can range anywhere from 10 minutes to 12 hours. 

Bangalore is touted as a global destination for MNCs and premier industries of India. But BESCOM fails miserably short of anywhere close to even Mumbai standards in terms of supply of steady and uninterrupted power supply. 

The gross inefficiency of this organization does not warrant making up its shortfall of revenue by hitting the consumers with increase in tariff, which in any case is the highest for consumers in the country. There is no accountability for this mismanaged company. At their will and pleasure, long hours of power outages are more often the norm than supply.

Appealing to all consumers of Bangalore to stop this mismanaged and inefficient BESCOM from further fleecing the consumers by unjustified increase in tariff. BESCOM should be mandated to produce quarterly financial performance reports and how much is their wage burden including permanent, casual and contract employees. Unless there is a public monitoring of BESCOM's performance and its public accountability, BESCOM will continue to remain a circus at public taxpayers' money.
