Scheme for 24-hour power supply to villages in Haryana

Statesman News Service | Chandigarh | Updated :

Haryana government is framing a scheme to provide 24-hour power supply to all villages in the state and it would soon be announced.

Disclosing this, finance minister, Abhimanyu said in future, farmers in the state would not have to face shortage of urea because the government has enacted a law under which it has been made mandatory for the state government to deposit money with the Central government in May-June for providing urea in December.

He said that various pensions being provided to senior citizens, disabled and widows would be revised from Rs 1,800 to Rs 2,000 from November 1, 2018.

He said that the previous state government had raised the pension to Rs 1,000 in ten years, but publicised it too much whereas the present state government has increased the pension to Rs 2,000.
