These include a 66 KV sub station at Thapar University, Shakti Vihar and Passiana besides up-gradation of 66 KV old grid in Patiala to 220 KV to ensure uninterrupted supply of power to the residents. This would entail a cost of nearly Rs 25 crore.

Apprising the chief minister about the surface drinking water project, Deputy Commissioner Kumar Amit said it was conceived to change the source of drinking water for city residents from underground (tubewell) water to surface (canal) water and was being funded by Asian Development Bank.
