    No Importance for Safety gear and equipment. MESCOM or let it be any other power supply board should provide.

    Very sad incident.

    Work-environment safety is a much neglected field in India. Whether getting a young son to climb own coconut tree, or getting a worker to do some work on an aircraft engine, one must be prepared to expect an accident.

    But people in India do not work that way. So various AVOIDABLE work-environment accidents happen all the time.

    But then again, our preoccupation is in making India a US$5 trillion economy. Small things escape our attention.

    This is an ongoing affair and we hear about it quite frequently. Nobody cares for the poor lineman, no safety precautions and standard procedures in place. Rupees 2 lakh compensation and life is back to normal. “Chalta he” attitude and it happens only in our digital India.

    Really sad, these public service men don't work for their betterment, but for the society. Hope the government honor our guards in a right way.

    Transformar always must be in safe area away from busy area like homes, bus stand, shops etc. But this electricity board dont consider safety points. Put very near homes where kids play or people wait for bus. Same thing in front if my house, request not considered, God must save us.
