In the lightning fast progressing and changing modern India--the electrical work executioners (consultants, liasoners and wiremen, LECs) must be well conversant with prevailing local, regional, national and international statutory Norms for electrical and electricity born fire safety, instead of thums up persons! Otherwise, electrical accidents will happen to take place and rise in numbers!! Means, well conversant techno-savy persons only should be licensed to carry out electrical installation related works.


In the present modern era, nowhere-houses, offices, hospitals, schools, buildings the electrical load will be pure AC sine wave load. Every where we will realize to have AC mixed with DC pulsating electronics equipments load. Such mixed load will cause heavy neutral leakage backed injection of harmonics-especially 3rd harmonics linked…

As per NCRB India records, and annual electrical accidents data, more accidents take place in low voltage-LV systems than HV systems. So, special emphasis should be pressed upon LV side provisions in CEA regulations.

In drawing approval of electrical systems by statutory authorities like-Electrical Inspectors and DISCOM engineers, the following parameters with safe limits should be made mandatory to be analysed and checked thoroughly---Voltage drop calculations, Voltage regulation, Earthing design calculation, Ampacity of conductors with effect of derating factors, Fault level calculation analysis (Min & Max), Earth fault loop impedance, co-ordination of protection on upstream and down stream.

Special attention should be paid to electrical installations having temporary nature which are more accidents prone and dangerous! They have not been covered in CEA safety regulations as well as the hospital and medical institution installations. Temporary installations have only a reference in section 54, EA2003.

Effectiveness of the provisions of electrical statutes can only be realised when violations of the same may be linked with heavy penal actions, just like provisions of CMVR 1988 & police Dept. Otherwise in absence of any credible deterrence, society will continue to take electricity in a very casual and light manner. Recent multiple fire accidents in hospitals and multi storied buildings along with the worst three electrical fire accidents of India-Mandi Dabwali(Sirsa, Haryana,…

In proposed regulation 37(old 35), simply an isolator be made mandatory to be placed upstream and down stream of a transformer and/or generator or a power system, having proper ratings irrespective of voltage levels.

Isolators may be-SFU, a disconnecting switch with fuse, a linked switch fuse, a disconnector etc. As Isolators are off load devices intended to be in action only after circuit breaker is/are operated.

Circuit breakers are on load devices.

In regulation 2, definition of "Isolator or Isolation" is missing, which should be included.
