Power theft is a silent crime that causes huge loss of revenue to power utilities. Despite advanced managerial and technical efforts to crack down on power thieves, power distribution entities are struggling hard to constrain the unscrupulous ways used to steal power. This book, now in its Third Edition, discusses some of the shocking methods used to commit power theft and enables the reader to identify, control and combat such power pilferage problems. The book provides graphic description of the modus operandi of power thieves and uncovers their cleverness and imagination in pilfering electricity. There is no panacea for curbing power theft, and utilities have to develop their own ways. This book presents a vivid account of technical and administrative solutions that can go a long way in nipping the problem in bud. The most striking feature of the book is that it uses suitable photographs to analyse the problems from various angles.

In the Third Edition, major judgments of Hon'ble Supreme Court relating to irregularities in power sector have been added. Power theft is very rampant in marijuana cultivation and is a source of social agony especially in the developed countries that has been described in the book with suitable photographs.
