    Fall of Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB)

    Brimming with gross malpractices and irregularities.

    Employees ensured records were not kept since these

    would make some of them vulnerable. Sardana also

    recalls how people thought IT was an infringement oftheir freedom - the freedom to allow middlemen and

    brokers to provide connections on behalf of the

    department and receive kickbacks.

    The DVB didnt have a single good example of

    benchmarking against other agencies.

    Sections of the DVB ran off just two desktops,

    which made processes largely manual

    Manual systems also opened the DVB to

    corruption, which made buying a power

    connection a punishment

    The absence of IT systems meant there werent

    any controls

    The problem had become so acute that the

    NDPL couldn't find an error-free and tamper-

    proof billing software that would plug the

    existing malpractices. "The average error rate

    in billing in most developed nations is three-

    to-four percent. When we took over from

    DVB, it was over 30 percent - all because of alack of a proper IT infrastructure

    New Beginning of NDPL

    Energize. It fulfilled the basic requirements

    in relation to purchase, store management,

    a two-desktop set-up to a structure where

    no employee could work without a PC and

    provide accurate billing to 9.1 lakh customers

    The NDPL developed its own software

    and implemented it across all 150 points of

    presence in its jurisdiction. All points were

    networked by a fiber optic network, leasedlines or wireless connectivity
