NEC sanctions Rs 12.7 crores for Tripura for extension of power transmission line

By Our Correspondent

Agartala July 23 ,2019 : The North Eastern Council (NEC) authority has sanctioned Rs 12.7 crores in favour of Tripura to extension of upgraded electric transmission line from Ambassa to Gandacherra subdivisional town. The state government has made full preparation for embarking on the work and the actual execution of the work will begin soon, said deputy chief minister Jishnu Debbarma who is also the power minister of the state. 

Speaking on the issue Jishnu said that way back in 2008 the then left front government had put forward a scheme for extending upgraded power transmission line between Ambassa and Gandacherra and it was duly sanctioned also after some delay but the state government then dithered over the issue and refrained from executing it. This had resulted in unilateral cancellation of the scheme and the sanction. 'The dilly dallying tactics of the left front government resulted in much suffering for the people from Ambassa to Gandacherra due power crisis but we tried to obtain the sanction afresh and finally it was approved by the NEC at our initiative' said Jishnu.He added that weak transmission line between Ambassa and Gandacherra caused frequent power cuts , leading to suffering of people but after coming to power the BJP-IPFT government tried hard to have the amount sanctioned for revival of the project. Now the sanction of the project will vastly improve the power profile of the road .

Jishnu said that recently the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has also sanctioned a loan of Rs 1925 crores for development of power sector in Tripura. He added that a three-year power development project will be launched with the sanctioned loan and this will bring about a major change for the better in the power sector of Tripura.
