Electricity connection is also under consideration of Aadhaar KSEB

Thiruvananthapuram: KSEB is considering a proposal to base the power connection on the Aadhaar number as well. The plan is to connect the Aadhaar of those who are already connected. KSEB has sought the approval of the Unique Identification Authority of India for this purpose. Wrote the letter.

With the simplification of the procedure, the connection can now be obtained by providing only two identification documents. However, many companies shut down after making a connection. There is a situation where they cannot be found and pay the arrears. The Aadhaar number is also being considered to avoid this.

Cannot be required to link to Aadhaar number. Therefore, in the first phase, only those who are interested will be considered for the Aadhaar number.

The board has also decided to revise the online payment system to curb cyber fraud in the name of electricity bills. Now if you go to the board’s website and enter your consumer number, you will see the details of anyone’s bill.

The information can be obtained by entering the mobile number only in the QuickPay system for payment. Doubts have been raised as to whether fraudsters are gathering information from these. Therefore, the OTP received on the phone. Consideration is being given to making the information visible only after it has been recorded.

KSEB to conduct software security audits Tender has been invited.
