Waiting for Centre to approve Rs 2,500 cr to revamp power distribution: Tynsong

SHILLONG:

Deputy Chief Minister in-charge Power, Prestone Tynsong, on February 3, informed the state government is waiting for the Centre to approve the detailed project reports (DPRs) of over Rs 2,500 crore for revamping the state’s power distribution system in the next five years.

“We have already submitted our DPRs to the ministry of power. The ministry through the Rural Electric Cooperative (REC) is screening them point by point,” said Tynsong, adding that this is under the revamp distribution sector scheme (RDSS) implemented by the Power Ministry, government of India.

The Centre had sanctioned Rs 3 lakh crore for different states out of which Meghalaya has proposed DPRs of over Rs 2,500 crore after approval by the cabinet on December 21, 2021.

Tynsong, however, is unsure if the state will receive the Rs 2,500 cr. “Once the screening is completed, we will know exactly how much they (Centre) are going to sanction for the revamping of the power distribution in the state,” he said.
