Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is all set start the ring main project that will interconnect all electrical sections in the city. Once the Rs 210 crore project is completed, the city won’t face power disruptions due to technical reasons. The tender of the project will be completed till mid of January and the project will be awarded till Jan end.

If KSEB is able to reduce transmission loss to 15%, the Union government will give 10 per cent of the project cost each year. So KSEB will get 50% of the project cost as grant from the Union government if it controls transmission loss.

The amount set aside for the project is Rs 179 crore and the remaining amount will be utilized for constructing a sub-station at Gandhinagar. The project was delayed on account of a petition in the court alleging corruption in awarding the work to a Korean firm. Recently, the court ordered the government to take up the project.
