Massive power cuts in parts of Jammu region, Vohra intervenes

Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra today asked the officials of the power development department to look into possibilities of improving electricity supply in areas of Jammu region affected by the damage to a grid station.

Chairing the meeting of Administrative Secretaries at the state secretariat here, the Governor said while the cause of damage was being looked into, the officers of Power Development Department must explore all possibilities to improve the power supply urgently.

Due to damage to the Gladni transformer, parts of Jammu and Poonch and Rajouri districts are witnessing massive power cuts, an official spokesman said.

Vohra expressed serious concern over the power shortage in Jammu in the wake of damages caused to the 400 MVA transformer at Gladni Grid Station.

He said he had taken up the matter with the concerned authorities in Delhi who had promised to help in the time-bound repair of the transformer which had been dispatched to the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) unit at Ranchi.
