Addressing the farmers later, the Minister advised farmers to utilise present 9-hour uninterrupted power carefully in order to transmit the surplus current to other places. Arrange on and off starters to pump sets instead of automatic starters to avoid the wastage of water, he added.

Earlier farmers used to get only 6-hour power supply to their fields, at present they are getting 9 hour, in near future agri sector will get 24-hour uninterrupted current on par with domestic users, he underlined Local public representatives and villagers participated in the programme.
