SRINAGAR: The residents of Hamdania Colony Sector –D, Lane are reeling under darkness since a month after their faulty transformer was not repaired by PDD officials.
The locals said that the transformer breaks down frequently as it is not able to cater to the increasing load of the area.
“We presently have a 250 Kva transformer for more than 100 households. It is overloaded, this is the reason that it gets damaged frequently,” said one of the locals Abdul Qayoom.
They added that breakdown could be minimized if the Power Development Department replaces the old transformer with new one of higher capacity.
