The Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL), which had initiated the process of creating separate feeders for these places following Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's instructions a few months back, was on the verge of completing the task, the official said.

"We are on schedule of making 24x7 power supply operational at these religious places by August," the official said.

Two major religious places - Ayodhya and Varanasi already have separate feeders for important religious spots and shrines. While Ayodhya is the birth place of Lord Ram, Varanasi is the seat of Lord Shiva.

Religious places, which will begin getting uninterrupted power supply from August include Dewa Sharif Barabanki, Sarnath, Bijnore Dargah, Naimisharanya in Sitapur, Vindhyachal in Mirzapur, Hastinapur, Kichaucha Sharif in Ambedkarnagar, Buddhist Stupa in Shrawasti and Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura.
