POWER AT AFFORDABLE AND FIXED TARRIF FOR 5 YEARS
Power represents a major recurring expenditure. In order to enhance the cost competitiveness, the State will provide power at affordable and fixed tariff for 5 years. This would not only benefit the new industry in Punjab, but also help in reviving the existing industry of Punjab, which has always been the State’s pillar of strength.
UP-GRADATION OF POWER INFRASTRUCTURE TO INDUSTRIAL AREA
The State will through the concerned department and agency get the audit of the power
distribution networks to the Industry conducted and any gaps such as lack of dedicated feeders, lack of proper feeder capacity, faults in distribution etc. will be appropriately addressed. In order to mobilize upfront investment in upgrading distribution infrastructure to the industrial estates, the State will explore the possibility of private sector participation for Industrial Estates at Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar.
