Open electric boxes in Navi Mumbai.

In the so called well developed area of Navi Mumbai, electric boxes are finding opened and badly maintained at various parts including Nerul and CBD Belapur, as even a small child can check and arrange it. In many parts, these electric boxes are placed very low line, as it can be easily touched by a child. The same state is continuing in some gardens also, worsening the situation.

Most of these opened boxes are situated near to the Nerul railway station, including Sector 15 and sector 11, which is considered to be the residential area which holds a large public, needs a greater attention. Also in the sectors 4 & 8 of Belapur CBD and in the Mango garden, where many children are playing, electric boxes are found open. Some of the boxes are situated inside the dividers of the roads are more vulnerable to problems.

Babu George, a resident of Nerul says, “most of the electric boxes are not maintained well and in some cases electric devices are also stolen and result in major repairs. These conditions may also lead to wastage of electricity and in turn affects the common man.”

Residents of Nerul and Belapur are complaining the irresponsibility of Electric Board officials, which may affect the public life badly. So, many residents want immediate actions from officials to change bad conditions of boxes. They want a constant checking in the area to avoid an electric accident.

Rahul Desai, Resident of Nerul blames officials, “once the electrical boxes are implemented; officials did not look back into the area, and sometimes remains open. Authorities should look into the issue with a sudden action to close the boxes and maintain it well. The electricity board itself open gates for illegal power users.”

Sundar Rao, resident of Belapur, says “Electrical equipments placed in public places need to be constantly checked and maintained to avoid accidents. Equipments near to gardens and playgrounds hasto be removed. Use better locks to avoid stealing electrical equipments. ”

When contacted, M. Dinakar, the incharge of Nerul section, assured to take sufficient actions to close the boxes and maintain it in the future.
