Poor power supply irks Khanmoh unit holders
Industrialists threaten to close factories
Srinagar, July 17: Piqued by the erratic power supply, industrialists in Khanmoh IE today threatened to close down their units if there was no immediate improvement in the supply.
In a press statement here today, the unit holders under the banner of Khanmoh Industrialists’ Association alleged that due to poor and erratic power supply in the estate, “we are incurring heavy production losses as a result of which we have no alternative than to close down our units.”
“Even though as per the PDD commitment there should be no power curtailment in the estate, the department is not adhering to it,” it said.
“Despite our repeated pleas, the department has failed to take effective steps to give us constant power supply. There are frequent power cuts in the estate that subsequently increases our cost of manufacturing,” said Abid Ali, President of the association.
Meanwhile, the unit holders appealed the Minister of Industries and Commerce to look into the issue and direct the PDD to ensure uninterrupted power supply to the estate.
