In a statement in Kuala Lumpur, Friday, it said a TNB staff or contractor was obliged to wear a uniform (red T-shirt, blue jacket with logo and name) while carrying out an official task.
“They (TNB staff) can only inspect the meter, outside the house. They are not allowed to make any inspection on electrical wiring inside the premises because that is beyond TNB’s jurisdiction,” it said.
The statement reminded the public that a TNB staff should produce his authority card which contained his photograph and identity card number, as well as employee number, before inspecting the meter.
It was reported Thursday that a man had impersonated a TNB officer to enter the house of a senior citizen and robbed the victim, on the pretext of inspecting electrical equipment.
