Lt Governor, Manoj Sinha outlined the efforts made by the government to meet the power supply-demand of the people especially in Kashmir valley during winters.
He said that a strong power sector means Ease of Living, Industrialization, and Employment Generation. We are strengthening J&K’s power infrastructure which remained dilapidated for the last several decades.
He outlined how the UT had attained remarkable progress not just in adding over 150% transformation capacity but also succeeding in increasing revenues by over 23%. The UT Government was already working on detailed plans to add infrastructure, address obsolescence and cut down losses.
