Under the various central schemes rural electrification is almost complete in the entire Jammu and Kashmir and it is a milestone for the administration as the rural population is now completely connected for the power supply.

Jammu and Kashmir achieved a major milestone under Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana ‘Saubhagya’ with the Union Territory accomplishing the 100 percent target of rural electrification.

The J&K administration has proactively worked in ensuring electrification to every village which is visible from the fact that almost 3,57,405 households have been electrified in the whole of the UT. J&K has also received a reward of Rs100 crore from the Government of India for achieving the target of 100% electrification ahead of the timeline.

The J&K Power Development Department is setting new standards in project, planning and execution. These measures will not only resolve the power crisis during peak season but will also open a host of employment opportunities by meeting the growing demand for the opening of new industries in UT.

Power Department introduced Feeder Data Monitoring through state of the art E-support systems which will help in direct access/ monitoring of AT&C losses and power reliability indices for all feeders.
