JAIPUR: JMC-Greater’s chairperson of street light committee has asked officials to conduct an audit of the company that installs such lights suspecting irregularities in payments.

Sukhpreet Bansal, chairperson of the committee, said despite an inquiry regarding complaints against the company, no action has been taken.

“There are several problems related to the maintenance of lights and residents keep complaining. The company was appointed for managing street lights in 2013-2014 but till date no annual reconciliation survey has been conducted by the corporation. Lights installed by the company has also never been checked. In many areas, dark patches have started to appear as these lights are not cleaned,” Bansal said.

She said payment for 1,12,288 lights is being done, “but no survey has been conducted by the corporation to check the number of lights.”

She said when an MoU was signed with the company, it was decided that for energy saving lights, 70% of the bill will be given by the company and 30% will be given to the municipal corporation as revenue, but no such payment was being made.

“The company has been getting money timely since a decade and despite raising this matter several times earlier, no action has been taken either by the department or the municipal corporation. There should be a check on the amount being paid to the company. A survey should be done by taking the councillor of the concerned areas,” added Bansal.
