CEB to appear in Court regarding un-scheduled power cuts

Apr 03, 2019 (LBO) – The Colombo Fort Magistrate Tuesday noticed the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to be present in courts on April 9 over its failure to provide the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) with the reports relating to power cuts.

Earlier legal action was filed against the CEB for failing to give details of scheduled power cuts to the Commission.

The Magistrate order summons nine senior officers of the CEB including its chairman.

The Commission cites the electricity board had acted in violation of transmission and bulk supply license of the Sri Lanka electricity act when it put into force recent power cuts unannounced throughout the country.
