Punjab State Power Corporation (PSPCL) has failed to achieve the target of its Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (APDRP) in spite of the availability of funds.

Union Power Ministry had sanctioned `10.08 crore for replacing all line conductors at Nakodar at the 11-kilovolt level and below; besides for load bifurcation, feeder separation, aerial bunched conducting in dense areas, and replacing electromagnetic energy meters with tamper-proof electronic devices. The focus of the programme is on actual demonstrable performance in terms of sustained loss reduction.

The 11-kv line conductors would be replaced with high-capacity transformers. Work worth `8.45 crore was allotted to Godrej and Bovec. PSPCL suburban division executive engineer SP Singh said the private companies had completed negligible work, so far, because of labour issues.
