The Nigam would also provide additional distribution transformers to improve the low voltage problem and to meet the increasing load at Hisar. The scheme also included replacement of worn out conductor of distribution lines, creation of high voltage distribution system (HVDS) in slum areas, maintenance of distribution transformers, meters on transformers and relocation of consumer meters.
