Chandigarh, Aug 28 (UNI) The implementation of power supply through High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) and Low Voltage Distribution System (LVDS) scheme initiated by the Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam has ensured uninterrupted power supply and significant reduction in the cases of trippings and breakdowns.
Giving details, a UHBVN spokesman said here today that the Nigam had completed a test study of 87 villages and urban residential colonies of district Yamuna Nagar, Kaithal, Kurukshetra, Ambala, Rohtak, Panipat, Jind and Sonepat, where the scheme had been implemented.
It had been observed that the cases of trippings or breakdowns were 728 in six months before the implementation of the system which reduced to 259 after six months and there was a reduction of 64.42 per cent. Similarly, there was reduction in damage of transformers from 40 to mere 4 i.e. 90 per cent.
The Nigam held 'Bijli Sabhas' in the areas concerned to make people aware of the advantages of the scheme and released 720 new connections to the applicants on the spot.
After implementation as many as 2489 prospective consumers applied for release of new connections which indicated that the electricity was being used by them in an unauthorised manner.
He further stated that after the new system there was increase in the units of electricity sold from 44.18 lakh units to 59.78 lakh units which resulted into increase in the revenue assessment from 152.43 lakh to 198.53 lakh i.e. 30.24 per cent thereby increasing the revenue realisation from Rs 124.11 lakh to 171.09 lakh in these areas.
He said the Nigam had erected new power supply lines and poles in these areas which gave a much better look to the village and help in minimising accidents. The reliability of power supply system had also improved which is the basic ingredient of achieving the goal of 'full consumer satisfaction'.
