The power substation at Ajnala would be upgraded from 66 KV to 220 KV at a cost of Rs 35 crore. This was stated by PWD and Power Minister Harbhajan Singh ETO while inaugurating the work of upgrading the station on Wednesday. The minister said the sub-station was being upgraded in view of the increased demand for electricity for commercial and residential use.

He said the station was set up in 1968 and was never upgraded due to which people had to face long power cuts and other problems. “The new station would be able to provide an uninterrupted power supply to consumers,” he said.

Harbhajan Singh said he had been frequently apprised of the power supply situation in the area, so it was decided to upgrade the system. Once upgraded, the new station would help nearly 115 villages of the area. He added that a new 18-km long transmission line would be set up.

“The poor supply of electricity troubled residents. This is the reason why the area has no industrial units as the supply was erratic,” said the minister.

On the occasion, Vardeep Singh Mander, Director (Technology), Satinder Sharma, Chief Engineer (Border Zone), Sanjiv Sood and other senior officials of PSPCL were also present.
