All the trade unions of the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) are opposed to the Rs 8,200-crore smart meter project. They told the KSEB chairman and managing director in their meeting with him on 8 June 2023 that they will hold an indefinite protest if the management goes ahead with the project.
After the meeting, employees held a protest demonstration in front of the KSEB headquarters in Thiruvananthapuram
The trade unions also decided to hold state-wide vehicle rallies highlighting the consequences of implementing the smart meter project. On July 5, more than 10,000 employees of the KSEB are scheduled to go on the streets in front of Vaidyuthi Bhavan.
