We recommend filing a written complaint with the MCD’s Power Transmission Department to have the high tension wires removed.
In the event that they do not remove the wires, you may file a writ suit against MCD with the court.
You may request that high tension wires be removed from the Hon’ble Court in the aforementioned writ petition.
Your only option appears to be to go to Civil Court. File a lawsuit for a mandatory injunction to have the wires removed since they are dangerous to people’s lives.
You also have the option of filing a writ petition with the Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana in Chandigarh.
The case is pending before the HC in the wake of an eight-year-old kid who had his limbs triple amputated after being electrocuted by a high-tension wire in his Panipat village.
In this instance, the High Court ordered the state government to pay roughly Rs 60 lakh in compensation.
Several people, including children, have died after coming into contact with high-tension electricity wires in various parts of the city.
After incidences when a huge number of buildings, including dwellings and commercial facilities, were built under or near these high-voltage cables by breaking the standards, the role of the MC and Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) remained under scrutiny.
