J&K Village Gets Electricity 1st Time Post Independence
While most cities are ready with blueprints for turning smart, people residing in the Dunnadi village of Shopian in Southern Kashmir are celebrating getting electricity for the first time in the village's existence of 70 years post Independence.
Earlier, in the remote area of Shopian in Keller Tehsil, various villages of Dunnadi were without power even after 70 years of India's independence.
Now for the first time, due to the relentless efforts of the electricity department and the district administration, these remote villages have been electrified.
Reportedly, people were overjoyed as they saw light bulbs illuminate their houses for the first time.
The area of Keller Shopian has been covered under the centrally sponsored scheme Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana which was launched by the Prime Minister in 2017.
