Andhra Pradesh: State gears up to install power meters for farmers

The state government is getting ready to roll out reforms in line with the three new legislations enacted by the central government for the agriculture sector.

The first among them is the withdrawal of free power and introduction of electricity meters for farmers, for which the state government is now preparing to install power meters to farmers across the state.

Chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has directed officials of the energy department to create awareness among farmers on electricity meters and clear their doubts on the measure as a substitute to the promise of free power.

The chief minister told officials and the minister concerned to counter the campaign of opposition parties against the government on free power and electricity meters to farmers.
