Haryana power utilities to start survey in village
Hisar: The Haryana Power Distribution Utilities would soon start survey of required works to be done for strengthening power distribution system in villages so as to enable the system to give power supply to rural domestic consumers for 15 hours a day during next summer.
A crash programme to strengthen power transmission and distribution system in villages is planned to be launched by the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitan Nigam and the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam, an official release said here today.
The Chairman and Managing Director of the Nigams, Devender Singh, has asked the field officers to bring down aggregate technical and commercial losses from present 30 per cent to 15 per cent, raise the consumer satisfaction level considerably by reducing number of complaints, increase time of power supply and improve reliability and quality of power supply.
For this, besides strengthening of power distribution system, attending complaints promptly and courteously is also the major step, the release said.
Singh has also asked the officials to strengthen the system up to a level that qualitative supply for 15 hours could be given in villages next year and technical losses are reduced considerably.
Devender Singh said that the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam has prepared its strategy to complete the crash programme within next six months and the Nigam is getting ready to launch it soon.
Under the crash programme, the Nigam plans to cover 21 villages a day.
The teams of workers to be raised exclusively for this crash programme would work for 25 days a month, thus, covering all the 3,492 villages in the jurisdiction of the DHBVN in six months, he said, according to the release.
Four teams of workers, with each team comprising of nine workers, would work to maintain and strengthen whole of the power distribution system in a village in one day.
Before entering the village, they would have proper plan of works to be completed in the village, he said.
The teams would be supervised by the engineers of the Nigam, Singh said, adding that the crash programme for strengthening the system would cover the works like tightening the loose conductor, replacement of all iron poles, erection of additional poles and conductor as per requirement, replacement of old and torn out conductor, maintenance and augmentation of transformers, among other things.
With the completion of the crash programme of maintenance and strengthening of the system, the complaints relating to power failure due to local system constraints are likely to reduce considerably, he said.
