With days getting shorter in the winter season, the Haryana power distribution corporations (Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam) have decided to change the power supply schedule to rural domestic consumers with effect from December 11.
A spokesman said here on Wednesday that the decision has been taken following instructions from the chief minister during a meeting with deputy commissioner and superintendents of police held at Chandigarh recently.
Electricity will be supplied to rural domestic consumers from 6pm to 9pm and from 11pm to 8am (next day). It will facilitate schoolchildren to get ready in time. During the day, electricity will be supplied in villages from 2pm to 4pm. Thus, the rural domestic consumers will get power supply for 14 hours daily, the spokesman added.
In view of change in power supply schedule to rural domestic consumers, the power supply timings of agricultural tubewell consumers will also be revised. The two groups of consumers of this category will get power supply for eight hours daily. The first group will be supplied power from 9pm to 5am and the second group will be given power from 8am to 2pm and from 4pm to 6pm. Timings for both the groups will be interchanged after three days.
