He said that Haryana Power Utilities would also release 1,450 pending tubewell connections soon under the new policy with an investment of Rs 10 crore.

Referring to the works carried out in the district to strengthen the transmission and distribution infrastructure, he said that the Government had set up two 220 KV sub-stations, nine 132 KV sub-stations and 17 33 KV sub-stations during the last seven years. Capacity of 12 sub-stations was augmented by installing higher capacity transformers, he added.
