On load shedding, EE(Transmission) clarified that due to drought-like situation last year, quantum of power availability was ‘very less’. However, he stated that Dimapur Transmission Division and Distribution Division of Chumoukedima and Dimapur were coordinating and working hard to minimise power outage.

It was decided to continue with a raid/disconnection drive for revenue improvement along with operation and maintenance activities for the welfare of consumers, it read.

Further, Jamir stated that while revenue collection is equally important, welfare and grievances of consumers and improvement in maintenance and stable power supply should not be neglected.
