December 15, 2020

With increasing energy demand in Kashmir particularly during winters, the Power Development Department has enhanced electricity supply by over 15 % this season.

Principal Secretary, Power Department, Rohit Kansal said: �In comparison to the last year, we are supplying over 15 % more power this time.�

While maintaining that they were looking ahead to give uninterrupted power in the future, he said: �Currently on the directions of Lieutenant Governor, we have asked our staff to ensure that people are supplied power as per the announced curtailment schedule.�

Kansal said that in the coming months, the Power Supply Position will further improve with augmentation of new grid stations and transmission lines.

He said that the supply enhancement was made possible through increase in transmission capacity and removing of other bottlenecks.

Kansal said: �Steps are afoot to upgrade capacity of Gopalpora grid, Mir Bazar transmission line and other projects to bring more efficiency.�

He said that all the officers of the department were working in coordination to provide more relief to the public by removing all constraints so that unrestricted demand of people was fulfilled.
