Edmund AG of market operations spoke more about this the decision companies were mandated by the rule to make security deposits which we call security cover in the market and this security cover is three times average of their monthly invoice in other words three times valuable voice is secured is kept with a bank and this is confirmed with the Muller operation that this is where you will have records assuming a disco pages invoice at the end of the month and it is not complete section of the distribution network can be disconnected that is as a temporal punishment so that they will fill it and rush to do the needful and that's what we are trying to do summing of these achievements come with me to see the managing director of TC n mr.
