Hisar, Oct 9 (UNI) To strengthen power distribution system in Faridabad town, the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has prepared a plan of Rs 165 crores to be funded by the World Bank.

Under this plan, the DHBVN has identified 33 feeders of 11 KV level for High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) where the system is over-stretched, particularly in areas having un-planned growth of residential and commercial establishments.

While laying this system of international standard, complete system of the feeders, right from their emanating point to the consumers end would be renovated and additional transformers would also be set up as per requirement.

The Nigam plans to add about 7383 new distribution transformers to the existing network of 3200 in the city.

Benefits of HVDS will be tremendous. Voltage up to the last distribution transformers of the feeders and thus reliability of power supply will improve. Losses will come down and the consumers, who have been hooking on to the system without a valid connection, will have to apply for new connection.
