The Central government is targeting to provide round the clock electricity supply to the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Union Minister of State R.K. Singh said.

Minister for Power and New & Renewable Energy (Independent Charge) R.K. Singh and Lt. Governor Girish Chandra Murmu together chaired a high-level meeting. The modalities for strengthening the power sector in Jammu and Kashmir were deliberated in the meeting.

During the meeting, Singh underlined that the mission of the Central government is to provide 24x7 power to all the districts of Jammu and Kashmir within the next two years.

He said that sufficient power is available in the country but J&K needs to address the issue by putting in place an adequate transmission and distribution system. He directed the concerned officers to prepare a project for capacity addition which could ensure round the clock power supply in the state and submit it to the Centre.

The J&K government was advised to request for further release of eligible funds under various schemes like Saubhagya, DDUGJY, IPDS, PMDP etc. He also guaranteed extending the project completion time of Saubhagya till June for accomplishment of the pending work.
