Srinagar: Inhabitants of Royal Lane, Noorani Colony – B, Kursu Padshahi Bagh heave appealed the Power Development Department (PDD) to upgrade the cables of the electricity transformer installed in the locality.
A delegation from the area said the transformer installed in their locality cannot bear the load due to damaged wires and link sets connected with high tension transmission lines.
The insulated connectors often catch fire due to damaged wiring. Most of the time the electricity in our locality is cut in order to save the transformer from major damages. “The problem is compounded by worn out power transmission lines which pose risk to colony inhabitants,” the residents said.
“We had taken up the matter with concerned AEE and JE of Electric Subdivision Chanapora (KPDCL) Srinagar, but no action was taken to replace the damaged wiring. We make a fervent appeal to chief engineer PDD, Ajaz Ahmad Dar to look into the matter and direct the concerned officers to upgrade the wiring on priority,” they said.
