Will try to improve, reduce curtailment especially at Sehri, Iftar: CE KPDCL

Srinagar, Mar 09: The Power Development Department is mulling to improve the power curtailment schedule in holy month of Ramadhan.

Besides, the department said that it will improve and reduce the power curtailment especially at Suhoor and fast breaking time (Iftar).

Speaking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Chief Engineer KPDCL (Distribution) Sandeep Seth said that it was charting out the plan and mechanism to resolve the power curtailment issues for the month of Ramadhan.

“We are working on it and most likely, the new curtailment schedule will be implemented from the first day of Ramadhan,” he said.

On asking about the improving power curtailment at peak hours, the Chief Engineer said, “In the month of Ramadhan, the peak hours will be pre-dawn and dusk. We are mulling to improve the power curtailment especially at Sahoor and Iftar.”

Pertinently, the holy Ramadhan is likely to commence from Tuesday.

In the last week of February, amid frequent power outages and distress cuts across Kashmir valley, Kashmir Power Developed Corporation Limited (KPDCL) had said that it was facing power shortage of nearly 400 Megawatts (MWs).

An official of KPDCL had said, “As of now, sufficient power is not available with us. Currently, KPDCL is reeling under shortage of electricity.”

The official said, “There is a shortage of nearly 300-400 Mega Watts. In view of the power shortage, there may be some areas in Kashmir who would be facing distress cuts and unscheduled outage.”—(KNO)
