Chandigarh, Sep 6 (UNI) In order to ensure minimum six hour power supply to agricultural tubewells daily, the Uttar Hryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHVBN) has decided to revise the power regulatory measures with immediate effect.

A UHVBN spokesman said here today that in view of the grid frequency and other technical parameters, it had been decided to impose load restrictions on industrial and independent industrial feeders from 0500 hrs to 0700 hrs and 1700 hrs to 0000 hours.

However, 10 per cent of normal load would be allowed for lighting purpose.

He said the tubewell consumers of Panchkula, Ambala, Yamunanagar, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Panipat, Rohtak, Jhajjar, Jind and Sonepat would get power in two groups during day and night in different time slots.

It would be ensured that electricity was supplied to public water works minimum for one hour each in morning and evening.
