24 hour power supply to districts having line losses below 12% : UP Govt

Uttar Pradesh government have planned to provide 24 hour power supply to districts having line losses below 12 per cent.

"We are considering to provide 24 hour power supply to districts where line losses are below 12 per cent and 22 hour supply to districts where line losses were less than 15 per cent", UP Minister of State of Power, Yasir Shah said in State Assembly.

The state government was earlier also cornered by opposition parties over unstable power supply in the state. "In rural areas even four hours of power is not available and government's claim of providing 12 hours supply is not correct", BJP's Satish Mahana said.

Swami Prasad Maurya of BSP said that not even one hour of power supply was given regularly which was preventing the tube wells to function, thus affecting the crops.

"The government instead of claiming to provide 16 or 18 hours of power supply, should ensure that people could get five to six hour regular supply. The state capital too witness power cuts so one can understand the ground reality", Maurya said.
