Electricity[edit]

The Mula Pravara Electric Co-operative Society Limited (MPECSL),[4] Shrirampur was established in 1969, as one of the five pilot co-operative societies established in India as a rural electric co-operative Society. It used to distribute electricity in 183 villages spread over five talukas in the Ahmednagar district. Its consumer base was around 1.45 lakh consumers with sanctioned load of around 207 MW and MPECS receives power from Maharashtra.

Since 1977, it has defaulted on Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL)'s bills. It also refused to increase power tariff as directed by Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) in 2007.[5] that resulted in dues to MSEDCL to staggering Rs 2300 crore. MERC has directed MPECS directors to hand over the entire power distribution system and associated assets, including offices, land, material and workshops to MSEDCL from zero hours on 1 February 2011. It can file an appeal before the commission to decide the transfer value of the assets. The society will also have to hand over all data in soft as well as hard format. It will also have to pay the security deposit amount collected from consumers.
