JK still lacks infrastructure for power improvisation
Alternate transmission line commissioned

Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, Oct 18: The commissioning of an alternate transmission line will not make any difference as Jammu and Kashmir lacks the required local infrastructure for distribution of power and its improvisation.
The Northern Region Strengthening Scheme 29 (NRSS 29), which is 414 kms has been commissioned in the state by Sterlite Power.
However, the Power Development Department officials said that alternate transmission line will not would end power crisis only when required infrastructure is in place.
"The alternate transmission line would have helped the state only if we had required infrastructure available. If the centre allocates more power, do the state has required infrastructure to handle it," a Superintending Engineer (SE) of the PDD asked, wishing not to be quoted by name.
The official said that Jammu and Kashmir state does not have the required infrastructure available to improvise the power scenario of the state.
"Presently, the state is dependent on local hydro power projects and a single transmission line passes through avalanche prone areas connecting J&K with the national grid. Now with the commissioning of second transmission line, although we can import more power but there we don't have carrying capacity available here to distribute the power," the official said.
An official of the PDD said there are several grid stations which await completion since years. For construction of 220/33KV Grid Station at Batapora Tealbal Chatarhama, the land was yet to transfer to the PDD.
Similarly, no decision has been taken yet for transferring the land to the PDD for construction of 132/33KV grid station at Tangpora Batamaloo.
While for construction of grid station at Khanyar, the official said that file regarding transfer of industrial land to the PDD was lying with the administrative department.
While, the work on Alastang grid station is yet to be completed despite passing over eight years. The work on Alastang grid station was started in 2010 for transmission of electricity to Ganderbal district. However, very least work has been done on the project over the years and missed multiple deadlines.
The PDD official said that that there is an immense load on Pampore and Zainakote power grids from where electricity is being supplied to Srinagar, Ganderbal, and Pulwama districts.
"The two power grids face overloading resulting in frequent power cuts in Srinagar and Ganderbal districts. Presently, the Ganderbal gets electricity from Zainakote grid station and remains overloaded," the official said.
"Had these projects been completed, they would have reduced load on two existing power grids and helped the state to upgrade the power supply in the Valley," the official said. The official said that department had sought tenders multiple times for completion of Alastang-Mirbazaar transmission line.
