On November 16, 2020, the Tashkent Regional Department of the Antimonopoly Committee in accordance with Article 178 of the Code of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On Administrative Responsibility”, issued and sent an administrative application to the Almalyk City Administrative Court in the case of Urazaliev Anvarzhon Khaidaralievich – Head of the enterprise “Almalyk City Power Supply” for disconnecting consumers with no notifications connected to electricity grid transformer No. 279 of the city of Almalyk.
In addition, on October 19-20, 2020, the topic of disconnecting residents of the Zangiota district of the Tashkent region from the supply of electricity for existing debts was widely discussed on Facebook.
In this connection on October 29, 2020 due to violation of the part I of Article 191 of the Law “On Protection of Consumer Rights”, the Tashkent Regional Department of the Committee issued an order No. 11-02-И. in relation to the JSC “Tashkent Regional Electric Networks”.
In order to fulfill this prescription, Tashkent Regional Electric Networks JSC adopted Order No.-517, according to which all managers and employees of supplier enterprises were aware that such offenses are unacceptable in the future.
Despite this, on November 20, 2020 about 17 thousand consumers of electricity were automatically disconnected from the supply of the resource for debts. As a result of a detailed on-site study of the staff of the Territorial Department of the Committee, it turned out that the supply of the resource was not automatically turned on even after the consumers had paid off the debts.
This situation was observed on November 21 and 22 in the Kibray and Zangiota districts of the region. Due to the fact that the order of October 29, 2020 No. 11/02-I issued by the Territorial Department of the Antimonopoly Committee has not been fulfilled, so an administrative statement have been drawn up against the heads of power supply enterprises of the Tashkent, Zangiota and Kibray districts and measures are being taken to transfer cases to the Court on administrative cases.
