Ladakh village gets connected to grid

Situated between two major high altitude passes of the union territory of Ladakh, the Photoksar village in Leh district has been connected to the grid, the first time post- Independence.

Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) inaugurated the NHPC- Powergrid line for the Photoksar village. Plans are underway to electrify five more hamlets – Yulchung, Nyraks, Skyumpata, Lingshed and Dipling – in the coming years. Regarding electrification of remote villages of Leh district, it is hoped that all other villages of Nubra, Changthang and Sham will also be connected with the northern grid in the shortest possible time.
