The Northlines - - KASHMIR - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT KARGIL, DEC 07

Chair­man and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cilor, LAHDC, Kargil Feroz Ahmed Khan to­day vis­ited 1.5 MW San­grah Mini Hy­del Project and in­spected the cur­rent sta­tus of power gen­er­a­tion at the project.

The CEC was ac­com­pa­nied by

Coun­cil­lor Thas­gam Ab­dul Rahim, Coun­cil­lor Tai Suru Aga Syed Ab­bass Razvi, Project Di­rec­tor Kargil Re­new­able En­ergy Devel­op­ment Agency (KREDA) Ka­cho Ah­mad Khan, Ex­ec­u­tive Engi­neer M&RE PDD Altaf Ah­mad be­sides other con­cerned of­fi­cers.

The CEC went round dif­fer­ent sec­tions of the project and in­quired from the en­gi­neers about the power sup­ply be­ing pro­vided to the lo­cals these days.

The en­gi­neers in­formed the CEC that a lim­ited power is be­ing gen­er­ated at the project in the win­ter time due to low dis­charge of wa­ter in the canal.

The lo­cals, while ex­press­ing se­ri­ous con­cern over the un­sat­is­fac­tory power sup­ply from the project, cited tech­ni­cal faults and said that power is not be­ing gen­er­ated de­spite the avail­abil­ity of suf­fi­cient wa­ter in the project canal. They urged the CEC to in­ter­vene into the mat­ter and di­rect the au­thor­i­ties of KREDA to rec­tify the tech­ni­cal faults so as to en­sure smooth sup­ply of power. Re­spond­ing to con­cern of the peo­ple, the CEC di­rected the Project Di­rec­tor KREDA to per­son­ally look into the mat­ter and con­sti­tute com­mit­tees com­pris­ing en­gi­neers as well as the vil­lage rep­re­sen­ta­tives to as­cer­tain the ac­tual cause of low power gen­er­a­tion. He fixed one week's dead­line for the com­mit­tee to come up with its find­ings and as­sured the lo­cals that req­ui­site fol­low up steps will be taken as per the com­mit­tees re­port. Mean­while, the lo­cals pro­jected a num­ber of de­mands in­clud­ing the con­struc­tion of check dams and crates along the sides of the project canal, mod­i­fi­ca­tion in the power trans­mis­sion line from Mini Hy­del Project

San­grah to San­grah

Thang, up gra­da­tion of the Hy­del Project ap­proach road, pro­vi­sion of new DG sets at Chul­lungs,

Banyalsa and Youkma vil­lages, re­pair of trans­form­ers at Goma and Lunkha be­sides other de­mands.

The CEC gave a pa­tient hear­ing to all de­mands and con­cerns of the peo­ple and as­sured them that all gen­uine de­mands will be ful­filled in a phased man­ner.
