Plugged In: Gujarat 1st to have all villages electrified

Our Bureau CHAMPANER



 
GUJARAT became the first state in the country where electricity has reached all the villages. President Dr APJ Kalam dedicated the Jyotigram Yojna to the nation on Saturday in historical town Champaner in Panchmahal district. All 18,065 villages of the state have now access to three phase uninterrupted electric supply.

  The state government commissioned the network of 56,599 km long cables and 12,621 new transformers under its ambitious Jyotigram Yojna in 30 months with an investment of about Rs 15,000 crore.

  Enthused with the 100% electrification in the state Dr Kalam said, "With this important infrastructure in place Gujarat can think of complementing it with the connectivities such as physical connectivity, electronic connectivity and knowledge connectivity to the rural comp! lexes leading to economic connectivity of the village complexes. Thus, the provision of quality electric power can lead to creation of three hundred PURA complexes covering the eighteen thousand villages of the state."

  This will further enhance the overall economic activity and the prosperity of Gujarat as a whole, he added. The scheme would also cover 9,681 outskirts in the state.

  "Jyotigram Yojna would supply uninterrupted power to households and cottage industry while farmers would get power for eight hours for irrigation. We have taken a big leap in development with electrification of all the villages. With this we are now five years ahead of other states in the country," Saurabh Patel, minister of state for planning, finance and energy told ET.

  Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi said the uninterrupted power supply would enable the villages to improve their standard of livi! ng as well as productivity . Dr Kalam also dedicated Champaner-! Pavagadh heritage site to the nation and acknowledge the status of this site as UNESCO's World Heritage Site. He suggested that the large number of tourist spots in Gujarat can be made more interactive by customising it in real time for any user who is willing to pay.
