The minister said the DCs will try to recover the unpaid bills

State Minister for Energy Nasrul Hamid Bipu has given directives not to provide gas or power connections unless the requesting entity is in a planned industrial zone.

He issued the directive to Deputy Commissioners (DCs) on Monday, on the second day of the conference of DCs.

“As per the order of the prime minister, all industrial zones need to be developed in a disciplined manner. Problems arise if gas and power connections are given indiscriminately,” said the minister.

The outstanding power and gas bills of government institutions currently stand at Tk140 million and Tk80-90 billion respectively.

“The DCs will try to recover the unpaid bills. If someone fails to do so, their lines will be cut off,” the minister added.
