Auto-starters to be removed from Telangana farm pumpsets from Dec 5

The free uninterrupted, quality power supplied 24×7 to the agriculture sector on an experimental basis in Telangana State has been a success, paving the way for launching the scheme from January 1.

Based on the experiment, the Electricity department officials apprised Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Sunday for issuing guidelines to be followed by farmers to prevent complications in continuous power supply when it is formally rolled out.

Following instructions from the Chief Minister, the officials have decided to conduct a special drive to remove auto-starters on agriculture pump sets from December 5. Officers and public representatives would educate farmers on the need to remove auto-starters to conserve ground water levels.
