Households are getting electric connections at a cost of just 125 rupees only which earlier used to cost them 1620 rupees.
They not only get an electrical bulb, a meter, and required cable but also an electrical connection with fifty units free.
For about seven thousand households it is for the first time their houses are being lit.
The scheme has so far received 10,800 applications from individual households in the district.
Most of them belong to BPL families. The scheme has come as a great relief for those who were deprived of electricity because they couldn’t afford it.
While India has made remarkable progress in bringing electricity to every village, rural electrification saw new momentum under the Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana.
It is also transforming the way electricity is consumed across the country as conventional bulbs and lights are replaced by LEDs.
