Delhi power reforms on right track: Minister

Our Bureau


THE Delhi Minister for Transport, Power and Tourism, Mr Ajay Maken, on Thursday said that the privatisation of the power distribution sector initiated last year has yielded encouraging results.

Addressing a meeting on `Delhi power reforms: Taking stock', organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (Northern Region), Mr Maken said that privatisation was the only recourse to reform the erratic power sector and added that a lot more needed to be done to achieve uninterrupted power supply.

Addressing the meeting, the Union Power Secretary, Mr R.V. Shahi, said that the availability of power was not an issue as far as Delhi was concerned.

The Secretary said that the Central Government ensured that about 3,800-4,000 MW of power was made available to the National Capital.
