Uttarakhand to get extra power

Dehradun, December 5
The Central Government has decided to give Uttarakhand an additional 150 megawatt of electricity from the Central reserve pool.
The breakthrough came at a meeting held between Chief Secretary Subhash Kumar and Central Energy Secretary P. Umashankar in New Delhi recently.
The Chief Secretary had informed the Central Energy Secretary about the grim power scenario in the state that was expected to get worse in the winter months due to gap in the demand and supply.
He also said most of the power projects had been shut due to environment reasons. “The Centre should adequately compensate the state by allocating extra power,” said Kumar.
