Karnal, July 12

The Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) has started the tendering process for the project of laying underground wires for electric transmission in the city to get rid of the existing overhead power lines.

The tenders will be floated in August, and the work will start from September. The deadline for the completion of work will be six months after the work is allotted.

The project is being initiated under the smart city project by Karnal Smart City Limited (KSCL). The project had difficulty in getting its wings, as it was plagued by some hurdles.

"The project is being initiated for the beautification of the city under the central business development area plan of the smart city project. All the overhead electric wires will be converted into underground power lines. The UHBVN has started the tendering process, and the tenders will be floated in August. After the allotment of work in the month of September, six months will be given to complete the work," said Nishant Kumar Yadav, Deputy Commissioner-cum-CEO, KSCL.

He said four roads, including a road from Committee Chowk to Mahatma Gandhi Chowk, Namastey Chowk to Meera Ghati Chowk, Tau Devi Lal Chowk to Maharana Pratap Chowk, and Hospital Chowk to Valmiki Chowk, would be covered under the project.

A sum of Rs 20 crore would be spent on the project. After completion of the work, the roads would become state-of-the-art roads, devoid of electric poles and wires, Yadav said.
