The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) will discuss with all the Electricity Supply Companies (ESCOMS) if it is possible to provide three-phase power supply to rural areas during day-time.

While conducting a public hearing on the proposed power tariff hike by Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) here, the State secretary of Bharatiya Kishan Sangh Rajendra Ramapura said that farmers face a lot of inconvenience when the three-phase power supply to the rural areas is restricted to night time. Besides losing sleep, the farmers have also become victims of snake bites and suffered other mishaps.

In response, Shankarlinge Gowda, chairman, KERC, said the commission will discuss the issue with other ESCOMs also to explore the possibility of supplying three-phase power to rural areas during the day time instead of night.
