One can also apply and make payment online on the BSES website (www.bsesdelhi.com) and its mobile application.

"Our entire machinery is geared-up to make 'same-day' connections possible. Our advanced IT capabilities and processes will play a major part in facilitating this," a BSES spokesperson said. "This scheme is our way of joining in the celebrations and making the festival season even more memorable for our consumers."

To ensure reliable power supply during festivals, the spokesperson said, BSES discoms are undertaking several measures, including putting its operations and maintenance teams on high alert.
