Jharkhand readies for electrification scheme ‘Saubhagya’
The Government has placed its preliminary idea before the Center under the newly launched ‘Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana’ (Saubhagya) scheme. Under the scheme meant for universal electrification, 17 lakh household still uncovered from power connection of any kind would be given new connections by December 2018.
Talking about the steps initiated in the State Cabinet Minister CP Singh informed that work has started to fulfill the commitments under the ambitious scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 25 this year. “We have estimated that about 17 lakh household in rural as well as urban area which has no power connection so far despite other schemes continuing, would be electrified by December 2018. The task would be completed by organising series of camps so that it can be done quickly,” said CP Singh, who was in Delhi to attend meeting of Power Ministers of all the States on Thursday.
The scheme is to ensure universal electrification of all willing households in the country in rural as well as urban areas with last mile connectivity. Connection to households includes release of electricity connections by drawing a service cable from the nearest electricity pole to the household premise, installation of energy meter, wiring for a single light point with LED bulb and a mobile charging point.
