UP Village Finally Sees Electricity After 69 Years Of Independence

Published on 8 March, 2016 at 8:20 pm By

It is hard to imagine a world without electricity, but a large chunk of population in India still lives without electricity. That was the case with Dhikka Tapari, a village in Sarsawa block of Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. However, the village has now received electricity, after 69 years of independence.

The village finally got power supply after a year-long exercise with Pashchimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Ltd (PVVNL) and governments of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Narrating the story behind electrification of the village, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Kairana constituency Hukum Singh said, after winning the election, he took up the challenge of bringing electricity to the village.

“When I contacted PVVNL officials and asked them to prepare an estimate of the work, I was told that it would cost around Rs 25 crore to install electricity line to the village, which is located close to the Yamuna river. But I did not lose hope and asked the then managing director of PVVNL, V V Pant, to find out an alternative solution. He then told me that the only solution was to lay a cable from Haryana, as Dhikka Tapari is situated just one kilometre away from the Haryana border,” the MP added.

While Hukum Singh convinced the Haryana government, Pant sent the proposal to the UP government. After meetings, between officials of both the states, it was decided to install power cables from Haryana to Dhikka Tapari village.

According to Hukum Singh, the whole work of installing power cables was done in no time and for just Rs 3 lakh.

After the arrival of electricity, 300 of the 550 households immediately applied and got power connection. It is indeed a great experience to have electric lights in the night, a villager said.
