The Haryana government today announced to increase power supply for domestic use in villages by three hours a day.


The villages will now get electricity for 14 hours a day from 7 pm to 6 am during night and from 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm during day, said Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in a release here.

Though it was planned to increase supply with effect from July month but the decision to increase supply hours with immediate effect has been taken in view of soaring temperature, the chief minister said.

Hooda said the government intends to give power supply to villages on urban mode.

For this, a scheme of Haryana's power distribution corporations is already available under which in case villagers bring down aggregate technical and commercial (AT&C) losses to a level of less than 25 per cent on their feeder and get meters relocated outside houses, they will be entitled for power supply on urban mode.

In case villagers opt for this scheme, their villages would be declared as zero power cut villages.

Under the new system of power supply, the low-tension distribution system is being re-laid and meters are being shifted to pillar-boxes. The old bare conductor is being replaced with accident free insulated cables.
