Chandigarh: Haryana Power Utilities have decided to launch a Power Distribution System Improvement Campaign in the state from January 1 next year and start a new project to provide uninterrupted 20 hours power supply to rural consumers.

Besides, with a view to ensuring more power supply to the rural consumers, the Haryana government would start a unique scheme under which 14 hours uninterrupted power would be supplied if one-third of the line losses could be lessened on feeders with more than 25 percent line losses, an official spokesman said in Chandigarh on Friday.

Further on lessening one-third of the loss 17 hours power would be supplied and on lessening technical losses to 25 percent or more, 20 hours power would be supplied on the pattern of urban areas. He said under this scheme, all the houses of the villages connected with a feeder must have power connections and the meters should be installed outside the houses. For those houses which do not have power connections, camps would be organised and new connections would be given on the spot.
