(Corrigendum to Employment Notification No: GESCOM/GM(A&HRD)/AO(P)/ALM-235/2011-12/36881 dated:09/12/2011)
With a major reform of the power sector in Karnataka, the Karnataka Electricity Board (KEB) was dissolved and in its place, the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTCL) was incorporated. This was followed by the constitution of Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) in November 1999.
In the next phase of the reform process, the transmission and distribution business managed by KPTCL was unbundled in June 2002. Four new distribution companies were formed to distribute power in Karnataka. Gulbarga Electricity Supply Company Limited (GESCOM) is one of those 4 new companies, which has taken over the responsibility from KPTCL for the distribution of electricity in 6 districts and commenced its operations from June 2002. The company has successfully entered into 15th year of operation at present.
With its recent initiative the GESCOM is releasing a new Corrigendum to its earlier advertisement in the year 2011 (Advt. No: GESCOM/GM(A&HRD)/AO(P)/ALM-235/2011-12/36881).
