PDD to announce new schedule soon
‘More dark days ahead’
Srinagar, Dec 19: A day after Chief Minister Omar Abdullah directed the Power Development Department (PDD) to avoid unscheduled power cuts, the department is all set to announce a new schedule within a day or two.
Sources said that as per the new schedule, the non-metered areas would have to face four days of evening curtailments a week while the metered areas would have to face three to four hours of cut a day.
The decision, according to the sources, to revamp the curtailment schedule was taken following instructions of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who doesn’t want people to face unscheduled cuts.
“Till now we had been compensating the power deficit through unscheduled cuts but the as government doesn’t like it so we have changed it,” said a senior PDD official.
He said the state isn’t in a position to import more of power as per the real-time requirements so curtailment schedule had to be lengthened.
