New Delhi, Jul 11 (UNI) In her continued advocacy of reforms in the power sector in Delhi, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said privatisation of power in the state had immensely benefited the people.
Inaugurating a national seminar on ''Energising urban India'', Ms Dikshit said with new power plants coming up in Rithala, Bawana, Bamnauli and Jhajjar shortly, major relief would be brought to people of Delhi.
Speaking at the seminar, organised by the Consulting Engineers Association, Ms Dikshit said keeping in view the rising demand for power in the national Capital, the State Government had undertaken several measures to popularise energy efficiency products and appliances among the public.
In this context, Ms Dikshit said those, who used those measures and products, would get rebate from the State Government under its Carbon Credits Scheme.
Later, while releasing a book on non-conventional energy, the Chief Minister stressed on consulting engineers designing energy efficient buildings.
She also emphasised on completing 2010 Commonwealth Games related projects on time.
The chairman of the conference K K Kapila said 150 experts were participating in the two-day seminar, which would deliberate on issues like sharp rise in commercial and industrial activities in the state, construction of high rise building without proper electricity arrangements and the need to make mandatory participation of consulting engineers in Government projects.
