CESC Limited will take over power supply services from the Jharkhand State Electricity Board (JSEB) by early next year. JSEB consumers feel this new arrangement will remove their long-standing grievances and discontents against the state’s power board.

The Member (Distribution), JSEB, CD Kumar told Business Standard on Thursday that in the process of biddings, CESC had acquired the bid and a letter of intent was issued to the company in October this year.
