The State Government has prepared the blue print of it, under which the rural feeders of these districts will be strengthened and the power infrastructure will be improved as per requirement, said chairman and managing director of Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam (UHBVN) and Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN), Shatrujit Kapoor while addressing the sarpanches and panchayati raj representatives of Pataudi, Manesar and Farukhnagar area.
Kapoor shared the plan of the State Government with the panchayat representatives to make district Gurugram, 24×7 power supply district from coming Independence Day and also to seek support from them in keeping the works of infrastructure improvement moving in their villages by forming a ‘Bijli Sudhar Samiti’ in each of their villages.
He asked them not to let the infrastructure works hindered. He asked the sarpanches to take all villagers into confidence.
Kapoor was given assurance by the sarpanches that they will adopt ‘Mhara Gaon-Jagmag Gaon’ scheme so that their village get 24 hours power supply. The CMD told them about the benefits of round the clock power supply and said that the aim is to provide round the clock power supply to 70 percent of the population which resides in villages and which is being supplied electricity for 12 hours daily.
He said that for supplying 24 hours power supply, the village panchayat is required to submit a resolution stating that it wants to adopt ‘Mhara Gaon-Jagmag Gaon’. Such villages must form ‘Bijli Sudhaar Samiti’ which will help resolve the issues coming in the way of infra projects.
Presently, 17 villages of district Gurugram are already included into Mhara Gaon-Jagmag Gaon scheme, said Kapoor.
He said that the defective electricity lines will be replaced and new transformers will be installed and other infra improvement projects will be taken up in the villages adopting this scheme, for which estimates of about Rs 45 crore have been prepared and approved.
Work on these projects would start soon. The sarpanches have got an opportunity to do something worthwhile for their village, which will be remembered afterwards, added he.
