Power supply to SLRC disconnected!



The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) yesterday (17) suspended the electricity supply to the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) due to non-payment of an electricity bill exceeding Rs.7 million.

The operations of the network had been severely affected following the power supply suspension and the authorities have restored the broadcasting with the power generated from generators.

The network had defaulted on electricity bills for many months and was due to pay an outstanding amount of over Rs.9 million.

However, an amount of Rs.3 million had been paid last Friday.

The electricity supply was restored within a few hours after a lengthy discussion held between the CEB officials and the authorities of SLRC on the assurance of paying another Rs.1.5 million today.
