VG: Despite your efforts, power scenario in border areas is not satisfactory, why?
NS: The government has spent Rs 17.53 crore on power infrastructure under Border Area Development Programme (BADP) in two years. Rs 46.00 lakh BADP works were completed in the District Samba during the year 2015-16 and 2016-17, while Rs 2.71 crore was allotted for the year 2017- 18, of which Rs 2.15 crore were spent till ending December 2017.
The funds were spent on augmentation of seven 11/0.4 KV Sub-Stations along with HT/LT network. Apart this, RAPDRP Part-B is also under execution in Samba District to improve and upgrade power infrastructure.
The capacity of the 66/11 KV Receiving Station, Thalote and Rahiyan has been augmented from 5 MVA to 10 MVA each.
Meanwhile, a Detailed Project Report (DPR) amounting to Rs.27. lakh has been formulated for Revamping/Improvement of 1x3.15 MVA, 33/11 KV Receiving Station Mandal Block has been prepared. The work shall be taken up as and when the funds are provided.
VG: Unscheduled power cuts and repairs of damaged transformers are still a big issue, why?
NS: To put an end of the unscheduled power cuts, the government has taken up augmentation work of five Receiving Stations viz., 10 MVA Wusan, 6.3 MVA Manigam, 10 MVA Kangan, 5 MVA Surfarraw and 3.15 MVA Gagangeer feeding power supply to Kangan Constituency. The upgradation of these installations would significantly improve power supply to the area.
The augmentation works under various centrally sponsored schemes entail upgrading of Receiving Station 10 MVA Wusan to 10+6.3 MVA, 6.3 MVA Manigam to 2x6.3 MVA, 10 MVA Kangan to 10+6.3 MVA, 5 MVA Surfarraw to 5+6.3 MVA and 3.15 MVA Gagangeer to 6.3 MVA.
259 distribution transformers were damaged during the current FY 2017-18 in the constituency, of which 253 have been repaired and reinstalled at their sites while as 6 are under repairs.
VG: Regular power supply for the people living in Kargil area is still a dream, when they will get regular power supply?
NS: To provide more power supply for the people living in the Kargil areas, a detailed DPR has been prepared to segregate 11KV feeders from 1X6.3 MVA Minji in Gramthang of Kargil.
A DPR amounting to Rs 42.44 lakh has been prepared for segregation of 11kV feeders from 1x6.3 MVA Minji (Gramthang) receiving station to Trespone, Trambis and Kanoor villages of Kargil to improve the power supply to these areas besides minimizing the interruption level to permissible limit.
The DPR has been submitted by Chief Engineer, EM&RE Wing Ladakh and is being processed for Techno Economic Clearance (TEC). The works on this project including release of funds shall be expedited and the work will be taken up on priority.
We are hopeful that the shortage of power in Kargil sector should be improved to much extent and people shall receive regular power supply.

* Police is here to serve the people and it is our duty to provide them a better life, in a crime free and peaceful atmosphere. * This was stated by the Director General of Police (DGP) Dr SP Vaid, during an exclusive interaction with the Young Bites. --------- Here are the excerpts. Vijay Gupta VG: As being the head of police family, what is your thrust for providing more facilities to your men? SP: Police family is a very big family which comprises of about 1 lakh and twenty thousand personnel, who works for day and night every day with a motive to provide the people a better and peaceful life. In this regard, we launch many welfare measures time to time. Recently, our big achievement was to provide promotions to many personnel, which has been approved by the government as a big welfare measure. Enhancement of ex-gratia for my men is also big news and we are trying our best to enhance this amount as compared to the ex-gratia amount, which is provided to the security personnel of other belt forces. There was a need for the reforms in health insurance, and I wanted to share here that we have started providing this scheme for our men at Narayana Hospital, in Katra, where every police personnel and his family members should get 15 pc discounts in their bills. Memorandum with the JK Bank is also a new welfare measure, under which every police person can avail a loan facility upto Rs 20 lakh rupees without any paper work and formality. Meanwhile for better entertainment facilities, we have signed a memorandum with the LG Company to provide electronic items to our men at the CSD rates and to provide better housing facilities to our men, who are protecting many important persons, I have asked my officers to provide them better housing facilities instead of tents. VG: Less quantity of ration to police personnel as compared to the security personnel of other belt forces is a regular complaint, why? DGP: This is true that the police of our state are getting less quantity of ration as compared to the security personnel of other belt forces; the issue has been resolved with the intervention of our Chief Minister. Now they are getting enhanced ration supply but still this quantity is less and we are trying our best to provide them adequate supply of ration earliest. VG: Housing colony for the retired police personnel is an old pending demand, is there any plan to provide them a housing colony? DGP: We are very keen to provide a housing colony for our men and this issue is still in progress with the government. There is delay as till date the government has not finalized the land for the construction of a housing colony. Once, the land is finalized we will start the construction for providing a housing colony. This was not all that the son of the soil and DGP Dr SP Vaid has to say about his department and his men, who are serving the people for better and peaceful life.
