The Haryana government has decided against no power cuts from noon to 4pm in about 1,000 villages having less than 60% line loss. The decision also aims to ensure smooth power supply this summer so that people do not face any problem. Also, under the ‘Mera Gaon Jagmag Gaon Yojana’, 24-hour power supply is being provided in about 4,500 villages of the state.
Speaking to media on Friday, Haryana power and new and renewable energy minister Ranjit Singh said complaints regarding power cut schedule were reported from several parts of the state over the last few days. Since it is paddy sowing season in the state, therefore power cuts are scheduled as farmers need more water, he said.
The minister further clarified there will be 24-hour power supply in 4,500 villages and no electricity cut in these 1,000 villages for four hours. Besides, there will be uninterrupted power supply in all the villages at night.
