Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Sept 6: Governor Satya Pal Malik today called for taking maximum benefit from the flagship power sector schemes of the Government of India to ensure tangible improvement in electricity supply to the consumers in the State.
"With adequate central funding available under various schemes for universal power coverage, the state's Power Development Department (PDD) should take every measure to extend electricity supply to the remotest corners of the State," Governor said while jointly reviewing with the Union Minister of State for Power (Independent Charge), R K Singh progress on implementation of flagship central power sector schemes in the State at a high-level meeting at SKICC here today.
Governor desired that PDD should make judicious and timely use of the available funds to ensure augmentation of power generation and upgradation of transmission and distribution network in the State.
He desired that PDD should ensure uninterrupted power supply especially during festivals and examinations of the students in the areas which are facing recurrent power woes. He asked the PDD to ensure round-the-clock electricity supply to at least such areas which are covered under cent percent metering and where the revenue realization is above 95%.
Governor and the Union Minister took a detailed review of R-RAPDRP, SAUBHAGYA, IDP, PMDP, DDUGJY and RGGVY and sought project-wise details regarding implementation of each scheme.
Speaking on the occasion, Union Power Minister complimented the Jammu and Kashmir Government for making remarkable progress over the past few months in meeting targets on electrification of unelectrified villages.
The Minister said that it was heartening to note that individual domestic consumers in J&K are the biggest contributors to the state's power revenues.
Commissioner/Secretary Power, Hirdesh Kumar Singh in power point presentation gave overview of the status of on-going projects. He informed that all 102 un-electrified villages have been electrified before the stipulated timeline under DDUGJY and RGGVY XII thus covered over 98 per cent villages and rest will be covered by ending December, 2018, he added.
