The formation of a committee by top officials underscores the urgency with which the government is addressing the issue of power purchase, indicating a concerted effort to provide relief to the residents of Kashmir in the near future.
Meanwhile, as per the officials in the power department, the authorities are working diligently to resolve existing issues and streamline the distribution network to ensure better electricity supply to the residents.
