You have play this safe.

The govt. can claim that portion of land in public safety and interest.

 

So, what you need to do is to first see the VOLTAGE of the line. Is it a minor line or a major 11 KV Line ?

If minor line, it is easy.

But if major line, they have to plan re-alignment from the feeder station.

So, it might get complicated.

 

Either way, what you need to do is to take a paper and draw a diagram with your suggestion on how the re-alignment can be done ?

This might need 3 more poles or more.

 

DO NOT MEET THE CHAIRMAN/ IAS OFFICER of the department, right away.

 

First meet the JUNIOR ENGINEER and then the ASST.ENGINEER and then the ASST. EXECUTIVE ENGINEER.

THIS PERSON WHO IS ONE LEVEL BELOW THE EXECUTIVE ENGINEER, HAS THE POWER TO DO THIS FOR YOU, if he wishes to.

 

All the best.

Dear Mr. Amar,

You need to have a meeting with your zonal manager. Who will either self or depute someone to visit at site. After visiting the site, they will give you the estimate amount of pole. Which you have to be deposite in the department. The department will either remove the pole or broke the pole while shifting the wire to other pole.

If they will not cooperate you, then make a complaint to Public Grievence Commission by visiting the page https://home.wb.gov.in/portal/wbhome/cms/HOMECMSPortletWindow;jsessionid=58B1E5EAF261CA7F4C7BBF0B625A34A7.node1?alf_f_name=contactus.html&action=e&windowstate=normal&alf_path=WebContent%2Fhomepagelinks&mode=view.

I hope this information will help you to findout the way of your problem.

A power transmission pole is not an intellectual property.

NATARAJAN IYER (Proprietor)     08 April 2017

But the electric pole supports power-supply mechanism which is used by people to become intellectuals and also in the crematorium to cremate 80+ yrs old people too. So, removal has to follow procedure.

You are sufficiently and well advised.


(Guest)

Dr. MPS Ramani is right in his observation that an electrical pole is not an intellectual property. In fact, In fact, the question relates to property law, so far as the property of the quthor is concerned, but he seems to have wrongly classified under the intellectual property laws. But here his problem relates to the Electricity Act of the concertned state, which he could better have booked under the head 'Ohers'.

Yes, but when a patient rushes to the emergency, the doctor should focus on the SOLUTION and not on irrelevant aspects of WHICH WAY DID YOU ARRIVE HERE

But after the doctor Mr Iyer has attended to the emergency can the question not be asked?
