Sharing his experience, Pralay Biswal, villager from Dhinkia Panchayat said, “Earlier when we were provided electricity from Kujang feeder, for most part of the day we were struggling due to low voltage or complete outage. With the Trilochanpur feeder becoming operational, power supply has been good. We are really happy now with the present situation.”


Bikramjit Samantray, Trilochanpur said, “Earlier we used to witness 6 to 7 times power outage every day. Even when it was cloudy, electricity supply used to get disconnected for hours. Now the situation has changed since installation of the Trilochanpur feeder. This has helped the area in many ways.”

This was an initiatives to strengthen electricity distribution network and infrastructure to ensure reliable power supply in its area of operation.
