Srinagar: The Kashmir Trade Alliance (KTA) on Sunday urged the government to ensure proper electric supply to industrial units and shops during the working hours. He said erratic power supply and low voltage was affecting their business.
“Industrial Units/ traders/ shopkeepers are facing difficulties caused by the hide and seek of electricity besides low voltage during the day. It is adding to the miseries already caused due to Covid lockdown. At a time when the economy is already running at a snail’s pace, poor electricity supply is adding to our woes,” KTA president Aijaz Shahdhar said in a statement.
He said the government should provide uninterrupted electricity without any delay.
“At the outset of the winter, rather than decreasing the curtailment hours, there has been an increase in the curtailment schedule. The KTA urges the government to provide uninterrupted power supply during the day in the commercial areas without any further delay,” he said.
