Under the ambitious project of government Street Lighting National Programme the corporation will soon be installing LED lights in all the streets in every ward of BMC. The work under this programme has commenced in Bhilai Municipal Corporation areas on Friday. The scheme is being implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), through Vipro Company and many street lights have been replaced at Zone-2 and Zone-3.

Under the guidance of Commissioner, KL Chauhan the complete area of BMC is heading towards the project. EESL has evolved a service model to enable municipalities to replace street lights with LEDs at no upfront cost. The residents of Bhilai had a long pending demand that the street lights should be good with proper lighting and under it the government is installing LED lights. This will help in reduction of electricity cost and save energy to large extent and will prove beneficial too.
