Electric supply becomes a problem during the winter months and is very difficult for the population living in the rural areas of Kashmir valley.
The government of Jammu and Kashmir is trying to change the power scenario and streamline the system so that people get the electric supply during the winter months without much difficulty.
Recently during one of the review meetings in the Baramulla district LG Manoj Sinha enquired about the status of power augmentation works being done in the district, he asked the concerned to submit regular reports on the stages of project completion.
He directed the complete up-gradation of Amargarh, Sheeri, and Delina grid stations within given timelines to boost up the present capacity of power distribution. He also directed to maintain sufficient stock of transformers keeping in view the upcoming winter session and reducing the AT&T losses.
Explicit instructions were issued to the Power department functionaries to restore power supply during upcoming winters within 12 hours in urban and 24 hours in rural areas. Undertake advance planning and Optimum resource allocation to ensure minimum hassle to common citizens.
He laid specific emphasis on departments to work in close coordination and synergy to remove all bottlenecks and impediments in a time-bound manner so that the project execution is not affected in any way.
