The Corona changeover has spoiled the budget of the Ministry of Energy. For this reason there will be no electrification expansion in the villages this year. Worn wires are not replaced either. The proposal to do the job with the remaining Rs.116 billion from last year’s business plan was approved. This is PVVNL’s smallest business plan to date. Paschimchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited (PVVNL) creates a business plan every year and sends it to the government to meet the expansion needs. This includes work on building new power plants, expanding the capacity of old power plants, replacing ailing lines, laying new lines, installing transformers and expanding the capacity of old transformers. This time PVVNL had sent a business plan of approximately Rs 390 crore. However, due to a lack of budgets, the government could not receive the green signal. Due to Corona, only the remaining work of last year’s business plan received the green signal for this year. This work is carried out at an expense of Rs 116 crore. But the budget could not be found in this plan to replace the ailing lines in the villages. Because of this, the wire breakage loss will continue.

Danger to life from ailing lines
Urja Nigam also has ABC cables laid in villages to prevent electricity theft on the city’s lines. But in the business plan for the current financial year, neither the budget for replacing ailing cables nor for ABC Cable has been found. Damage to life and property occurs every day due to the breakage of ailing line wires. Farmers also suffer heavy losses from crop fires. The villagers are the greatest demand for transformer capacity improvement to replace the ailing wires and overcome the low voltage problem.

Due to Corona, only the old business plan was adopted as a revised plan. The remaining work from last year’s planning will be completed this year. Arvind Mallappa Bangari, Managing Director PVVNL Meerut
