Pilot projects for Srinagar, Jammu
SRINAGAR, Jun 3: The state government is mulling Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) mode to ensure 24X7 power supply to the consumers in the state without increasing tariff or putting any additional burden on the consumers.

To begin with, the Public-Private partners under this mode would be roped in distribution of electricity in the two capital cities of Srinagar and Jammu.

This was hinted by the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah here on Monday while receiving presentation on the study made under the guidance of Planning Commission of India by FEEDBACK INFRA for ascertaining feasibility of this project.

Omar, while chairing the high-level meeting, underlined the need for ensuring uninterrupted electricity supply to the consumers in the state without increasing tariff or putting any additional burden on

the consumers. He said a befitting mechanism in PPP mode could be mulled in this regard to begin in the twin capitals of Srinagar and Jammu.

The Chief Minister said that his government flagged power sector as one of the most important sectors in the development policy and various measures had been put in place to increase generation and

provide electricity to the consumers hassle-free.

“PPP participation both in generation as well as distribution will be welcomed, if it ensures increase in indigenous power generation and upgrade supply system without tariff increase,” he said and added that the presentation made by the representatives of Planning Commission of India and FEEDBACK INFRA would be given proper thought by the concerned departments. He said a final blue print for rolling out the scheme would be discussed with all the stakeholders and the state cabinet.

The objective of PPP distribution in the cities of Srinagar and Jammu was aimed at eliminating power cuts and ensuring supply of electricity 24x7 without loading any additional tariff burden on consumers.

The feasibility study was undertaken by FEEDBACK INFRA under the guidance of Planning Commission of India.
