Madhya Pradesh Poorva Kshetra Vidyut Vitran Company Limited has succeeded in providing electricity to the residents of village Tuiyapani after 70-years of independence under Gadarwara electricity division of Chichli block in district Narsinghpur.

Residents of this village Tuikapani were estranged from the main stream of development due to absence of electricity supply. It was a challenging task for the company to stretch electricity network in the village which is surrounded by dense forest. The company took up the complicated task for providing electricity in this village and obtained several clearances from forest department and other competent authorities to stretch electricity network through the dense forest area.

MPPKVVCL successfully fulfilled the norms and obtained clearances from Ministry of Forest, Ministry of Environment, Government of India and implemented best practices to avoid any kind of violation of norms. The company has deposited the compensation of Rs. 126 lakhs with the Forest Department and permission of stretching electricity lines on 6.286 acres land that was handed over to the Forest Department for plantation purpose by Collector Narsinghpur, on August 23, 2017.

MPPKVVCL, Managing Director, Mukesh Chand Gupta (IAS) congratulated to Narsinghpur Circle, Superintendent Engineer, Arvind Choubey and his team for fulfilling the complicated task. He informed that the 5.5 kilometres area between villages Gotitoriya and Tuiyapani has dense forest and hills which proves trouble in installation of electricity poles, power transformers and cable network. Engineers of the company have successfully achieved the uphill task and paved the way of electricity supply for population of 508 persons and 109 homes.

The project was completed with an expenditure of Rs. 35 lakhs under the head of Deendayal Yojana including 6.5-kilometres distribution lines, 125 electricity poles, a power transformer and other equipments. The company has materialized the project before its stipulated time till December 2017.
