Hamirpur, September 14

The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Bilaspur will get a power substation soon. This was stated by Sukh Ram Chaudhary, Power Minister, on the AIIMS campus in Kothipura of Bilaspur district.

He said AIIMS would be a state-of-the-art multi-specialty hospital that would serve people of the state with the most experienced doctors.

He said a 13-kilo watt (KW) substation being constructed here would not only supply power to the institute, but also ensure the uninterrupted supply to nearby villages. He said this would also solve low voltage problem in the area.

Chaudhary said Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Limited was consistently working on improving the power supply and infrastructure in the state.

He said the HPSEBL had replaced over 29,000 wooden poles with steel poles and the process was going on. The board was also installing more transformers to address the voltage issues, he added.
