Due to the construction and completion of many Transmission & Distribution Projects executed by JKPDD, there is a lot of visible difference in the power scenario of Jammu and Kashmir.
Recently the government has inaugurated the completed projects of such nature and Operationalization of these augmented facilities will ensure all-round development in the region.
LG Manoj Sinha recently inaugurated projects to substantially improve power supply in all 10 districts of Kashmir Division.
Government has initiated a large-scale capacity augmentation programme. In 70 years, J&K was able to harness only 3500 MW and now generation capacity is set to be doubled in 3 years and trebled in 7 years.
The aim of the government is to provide good quality electricity to citizens and businesses. These augmented facilities will address the important need of the growing economy.
AT&C losses are high and it is our social obligation to make power a self-sustaining, fast-growing sector of J&K.
In yet another step to augment the power capacity by strengthening the power infrastructure in the UT, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha recently inaugurated 42 Transmission and Distribution projects executed by Jammu and Kashmir Power Development Department (JKPDD), worth Rs 357 crores, here at Anantnag.
