Bhopal: While State Energy Minister Rajendra Shukla recently announced that Madhya Pradesh will be self sufficient in the energy sector by the end of 2013, the Madhya Pradesh State Electricity Board seems to be grappling with problems of its own.

According to official sources, the MPSEB has not disbursed salaries to its employees for the month of February.

“The salaries of the employees of all three discoms have not been disbursed due to a shortage of funds,” Financial Advisor to the board A. M. Sajnani told The Hindu.

Top officials of the board confirmed that the salaries have not been disbursed but said that the problem would be solved soon. “Yes the salaries have not been disbursed yet but it's a temporary problem and will be taken care of over the next few working days,” said Sanjay Shukla, Chairman and Managing Director of Madhya Pradesh Madhya Kshetra Vidhyut Vitaran Company Ltd. “
