Haryana to enhance power supply in rural areas

Chandigarh: Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam on Tuesday said that two-phase power supply would be ensured in rural areas for domestic consumers from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. and 6-30 p.m. to 10-30 p.m. daily in view of the ensuing examinations of students.

These consumers would also get power when three-phase power is supplied for tube-wells for agriculture and public health water works for drinking water purpose, said an official release.

The Nigam would supply electricity in two groups to the tube-well consumers. The farmers would get electricity for six hours in the night group and for five hours during the day group with additional one hour supply for drinking water. The timings of rural groups will change alternatively, it said.

The duration of restrictions would vary from 60 to 90 minutes in one slot in district Ambala, Yamuna Nagar, Kurukshetra, Rohtak, Jhajjar, Sonepat, Kaithal, Karnal, Panipat and Jind.

The spokesman said electric supply to the industrial feeders and independent industrial feeders would be restricted. The load restriction on all categories of consumers can vary depending upon the system parameters. - PTI
