Chairman, APDCL, VK Pipersenia and senior officials of APDCL, AEGCL and APGCL reviewed the power scenario along with the district administration on Wednesday. Reviewing the power supply scenario in the district, VK Pipersenia said that the state government along with the Chief Minister is very concerned about the power issues of South Assam’s Barak Valley.
Pipersenia informed that the management of the three companies is very keen to solve the power issues of Barak Valley. The Chairman said, “APDCL’s main concern is to provide 24×7 uninterrupted, good quality power supply. But after the implementation of the Saubhagya scheme, the load on our network has increased manifold resulting in a huge burden on our infrastructure.” Pipersenia urged the officials to keep electricity as a priority topic in DDC meetings as ‘no work of any other department is possible without electricity’. He requested them to appoint an Additional Deputy Commissioner to look into the complaints related to electricity as ‘there is need of external monitoring to arrive at solutions of various problems effectively and efficiently’.
The Chairman further appreciated the hard work done by all officers and staff of APDCL. He said that despite many constraints the officers and staff of APDCL have been trying their best to provide uninterrupted power supply to all valued consumers of APDCL.
