Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd
(UPPCL) day said it has decided to do away with its one-time
settlement (OTS) scheme for defaulters to pay their arrears
without interest.

"The OTS scheme, which is launched every year to give a
chance to defaulters to pay their arrears without paying any
interest, will not be launched in future," a senior UPPCL
official said.

An announcement in this regard was made by Energy
Minister Ramvir Upadhyar during a review meeting of the
corporation yesterday.

At the meeting, officials were directed to take tough
action to recover their arrears from defaulters.
