Shimla Mulana village of Panipat district has become the first village in Haryana to be completely illuminated with Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps.

The Renewable Energy Department has provided power and solar energy equipments worth Rs. 13.27 lakh to the village, a department spokesperson said.

Panipat: Haryana Power Generation Company Limited (HPGCL) has decided to lease four units of the Panipat Thermal Power Station (PTPS) on long-term basis.

With the shutting down of six thermal units in four thermal power plants, the power crisis has aggravated, leading to unscheduled cuts ranging between three and eight hours daily.

The company’s existing infrastructure in the state suits its expansion plan.

The shortage of power being faced by the state has hit the local industry hard as the manufacturing cost of industrial goods has gone up by almost 30 per cent, reducing the profit margins.

With four thermal units of 1,610 MW capacity units down, unscheduled power cuts have become the order of the day.

The urban population figures of Haryana and Punjab present a study in contrast.

Gurgaon district administration enforced Section 144 of the CrPC on Monday to ban hookah bars in the city.

Irregular supply of raw material, financial crunch, delayed clearances key hurdles

The Urban Development Ministry has given in-principle approval to three Regional Rapid Transit System corridors which will vastly improve Delhi's connectivity with Alwar, Panipat and Meerut.
