  1. I have been browsing online more than three hours
    nowadays, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. hello sir, I live in Rajnagar extension and my society gave 3 Killowatts load in our meter. If we want to increase that to 4 Killowatts they are asking for 50,000 rupees. and i guess we have governemt authorised meter that too without the power backup. are they right? do we really need to pay that much amount to get our meter load increased only 1 Killowatt

  3. Are line and installation charges plus transformer charges the same or different for commercial and domestic connection
