APJ Abdul Kalam Saur Yojna
The government has released an amount of 1.91 crore under Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Urban Solar Punj Yojana. With this money, solar power plants and solar street lights will be installed to illuminate the city roads. This will reduce the electricity bill of the municipality. Tube wells will also be operated.
Under the plan, the city will install a 75 watt 500 white colored solar street light, six meter pole with a 5-year warranty. Apart from this, installation of 4 solar high light and batteries and battery boxes will be installed.
This work will have to be reported by 31 March 2020. Also, if more money is required to complete the scheme, the municipality will have to spend it by itself. This amount given by the government under the scheme will not be used for any other purpose.
