Dhaka Power Distribution Company Ltd (DPDC) will complete its departmental investigation by today (Tuesday) into issuing inflated electricity bills to a large number of consumers, reports UNB.

"We'll complete the investigation process by June 30 and nobody involved in bill inflating process will be spared," Bikash Dewan, managing director of DPDC, told consumers during a virtual public hearing on Sunday night.

The remarks from DPDC top executive came against the backdrop of the Power Division's recent decision that power distribution companies have to clarify their position on inflated bills.

There are widespread allegations that a huge number of power consumers received exaggerated electricity bills during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
