Jugard: An Indian antidote or malaise

Delhites have found an ingenious methods to overcome their hefty electricity bills. Times of India reports that by installing a radio frequency circuit in their electronic meters, some Delhites are able to divert the incoming current flow out of the meter without being recorded. Naturally the Discoms were shocked.


Can we call this whole idea a 'jugard', the ubiquitous Indian patent? We all are willing to, if it serves an useful purpose. Look at it this way, the heavy duty users of power will call this radio frequency circuit a 'jugard' but the 'Discoms' will call it illegal. The simple yardstick should be that, every 'jugard' should make us proud. This circuit isn't doing that, so we cannot call it a 'jugard' but surely we can call it an opportunity...
