Rs 40 cr sanctioned for solar streetlights in UP

Uttar Pradesh government has sanctioned nearly Rs 40 crore for installation of solar powered street lights in Uttar Pradesh. Chief secretary Jawed Usmani, who was presiding over a review meeting on July 6 asked officials of the UP New Energy Development Authority (UPNEDA) to ensure that another Rs 29 crore is granted from the Centre.

The LED type streetlights, he said, will not only be installed in various districts but also in over 2,000 Lohia grams where they are needed the most. In all over 11,100 solar street lights will be installed in the financial year 2013-14. He also asked the officials of UPNEDA to see that government orders related to finances, related subsidies and policy decisions to ensure long term functionality of the system be put in place. Usmani also asked officials to link maintenance of street lights with the skill development scheme.

For this, UPNEDA could coordinate with the department of technical education. As for the lights that are being installed in the rural areas, coordination be made with the department of panchayati raj, which will carry out the maintenance of the lights from the funds granted to it under the 13th finance commission.
