Chandigarh, Nov 26 (UNI) With a view to giving power supply on urban mode to the rural domestic consumers and to further improve quality of supply to the tubewells will be the top priority of the Dakhsin Haryana Bijli Vitran NIgam (DHBVN).

Managing Director of DHBVN, Mr Anurag Agarwal said this here today while addressing a meeting of senior officers of the Nigam.

The meeting was convened to review the progress of segregation of rural domestic and agriculture load. Mr Agarwal directed the officers to complete the project at war footing.

He said though the execution work of the project has gained momentum but more thrust was required to be given to complete it early. He revealed that the DHBVN had already commissioned 225 of the newly erected feeders of 11 KV level for segregation of domestic and agriculture load.

He said the DHBVN would erect 544 new 11 KV feeders to segregate rural domestic and agriculture load in its area comprising the districts of Sirsa, Fatehabad, Hisar, Bhiwani, Mahendragarh, Rewari, Gurgaon, Mewat and Faridabad. Total existing feeders having mixed load were 879, he added.

With the creation of this new system, there would be three phase power supply for the scheduled period and as such, there would be no shortage of supply for drinking water purposes and for other activities dependent on three phase supply in rural area.

Mr Agarwal said to ensure energy audit, the DHBVN would install meters on all the distribution transformers having latest communication facility. In the first instance, DT meters would be installed on the feeders having higher line losses.

While installing DT meters, it would be ensured that meters were installed on all the audit of the feeders where DT metering was complete.
