Divisional commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan today directed all deputy commissioners of Kashmir division to regularise all illegal power connections under Saubhagya scheme up to October 31, 2018 on war footing.
The divisional commissioner made these directions while reviewing the status of centrally sponsored scheme Saubhagya aimed to provide electricity to all households.
He also asked them to identify those households who have two or more families residing under single electricity connection.
He directed SICOP and PGCIL authorities to supply poles, conductors, transformers, HT wires and other necessary materials to all districts administrations so that the said scheme is implemented in the Kashmir Division in a stipulated time.
"DDCs will work in co-ordinate efforts to ensure that the beneficiaries are identified in a transparent manner so that the benefit percolates to the genuine and deserving ones," he added.
Concerned district administrations were also asked to send their complete progress report to the Divisional Commissioners office on weekly basis for the further necessary action.
