A drive against the illegal use of electricity has been started many years ago by the Chief Executive of PESCO. This drive aims to provide the legal use of electricity to its consumers. If somebody is caught red-handed, strict action will be taken against that party and if some other is involved in it he would also have to pay for what he did.
