Irregularity in CFL distribution alleged

KOCHI: The Kerala Electricity Employees Confederation (INTUC) has alleged that a scheme being implemented by the State government for distribution of compact fluorescent lamps is flawed.

The scheme is a variant of the Bachat Lamp Yojna (BLY) of the Union government, a fact being sidelined by the State government, according to general secretary M.S.Rawther.

He said at a press conference here on Saturday that the BLY scheme envisaged replacement of faulty CFL lamps within two or three years depending on whether the guaranteed life span of the lamp was 6,000 hours or 10,000 hours. The State government had distributed lamps having a life span of 6,000 hours, with a one year guarantee.
