The Ministry of Power has transferred the prestigious 220 kV Srinagar-Drass-Kargil-Khaltsi-Leh Transmission System to Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL), a Maharatna Central Public Sector Undertaking (CPSU).

The transmission system, which was dedicated to the nation by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in February 2019, connects the Ladakh region to the national grid, ensuring quality and reliable power supply.

This 335-km long transmission line has been built at a height of around 3,000-4,000 meters, and traverses snow-bound difficult hilly terrain. It comprises of 4 new state-of-the-art 220/66 kV Gas Insulated Sub-stations and 66 kV interconnection systems at Drass, Kargil, Khaltsi and Leh.

Further, the project was executed by PGCIL on consultancy basis under Prime Minister’s Reconstruction Plan (PMRP) Scheme.

Subsequent to the reorganisation of the erstwhile state of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) into UTs of J&K and Ladakh, the 220 kV Srinagar-Leh Transmission System has been re-designated as Inter State Transmission System (ISTS) and transferred to PGCIL with effect from October 31, 2019, the date of formation of the 2 UTs of J&K and Ladakh.
