Summer in Telangana to be cooler as KCR tackles power cut hassles
Summer in Telangana to be cooler as KCR tackles power cut hassles There will be no power cuts in Telangana State from May this year with about 1,000 MW being added to the grid in phases from Sunday, said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
There will be no power cuts in Telangana State from May this year with about 1,000 MW being added to the grid in phases from Sunday, said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
He also reiterated that the State would give nine-hour uninterrupted power supply from 9 am to 6 pm for agriculture from 2016 and would maintain 24-hour supply to all sectors from 2017. After careful consideration, the UPA government provided 53.89 per cent output to Telangana from AP-based power stations and 46 per cent to AP from Telangana power plants in the AP State Reorganization Act.
But, Andhra Pradesh’s reluctance to give Telangana its share of power in Hinduja and Krishnapatnam power projects proved to be a blessing in disguise .We would have committed to purchase power at the rate of Rs 7.20 a unit for several years from those plants and obliged AP by supplying cheaper power from Telangana generation corporation at Rs 3.75 a unit, he said.
