Gangotri Dham to be connected with main grid
The Uttarakhand Power Corporation Limited (UPCL) is working to connect the Gangotri Dham with the main grid, to provide permanent power supply. At present, an 11-KV line is being laid between Mukhba and Bhairoghati on a stretch of 15 km.
The department has sent a proposal to extend the same line for another 8 km to Gangotri. Besides, the authorities are also mulling to relocate the 33-KV sub-station of NTPC located at Dabrani.
The corporation hopes to provide power supply before the commencement of the Char Dham yatra next year.
´Work to connect Gangotri Dham to the main power grid is underway. A proposal for a new sub-station at Jhala has also been forwarded to the government,´ said RL Raturi, SDO, UPCL.
