Gurgaon: From August 15, Independence Day onwards, the districts of Gurgaon and Ambala in Haryana will have round-the-clock electricity. A blueprint, in such manner, was arranged today by the government.

The state government’s guarantee that Gurgaon will be free of power cuts and get 24×7 electricity supply from August 15 got another turn on Sunday. Shatrujeet Kapoor, chairman-cum-managing director of Haryana’s two power distribution companies, said that Gurgaon’s urban ranges are as of now getting 24×7 power supply and now the government plans to enhance electricity supply in villages.

Chairman and Managing Director of Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitaran Nigam (UHBVN) and Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) Shatrujit Kapoor tended to sarpanches and Panchayati Raj delegates of Pataudi, Manesar and Farukhnagar ranges to look for their help for framing the ‘Bijli Sudhar Samiti’ in their villages.

“There are outages and technical faults in Gurgaon causing power cuts, but those area separate issues and have to be handled at the local level. The government had already announced that Gurgaon (urban areas) will get an uninterrupted power supply,” Kapoor said.

The deficient electricity lines would be supplanted and new transformers are introduced and other infra projects will be taken up in the villages receiving this plan, for which appraisals of about Rs. 45 crore has been arranged and endorsed, he included.

Bijli Sudhar Samiti would be framed in each town of Gurgaon and Ambala to help make the arrangement a win. Broken electricity lines will be supplanted and new transformers introduced in the district for which a Rs 45-crore support has been endorsed.
