Srinagar, Apr 21: Managing Director (MD), Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Ltd (KPDCL), M Yasin Choudhary test charged 33/11 KV, 1x 6.3 MVA Nihalpora Receiving Station, thereby addressing the long-pending demands of the people of Pattan and Tangmarg in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district. 
The Nihalpora Receiving Station outgoing feeder will feed power to the people of Pattan which will decrease the overall demand on the already existing Patan Receiving Station thus bringing respite to the people of the Pattan and Tangmarg by providing better and reliable power to both the sections of society through load division.
It is worth mentioning here that before the commissioning of the Nihalpora Receiving Station, part of Tangmarg and Pattan was being fed from the existing Patan Receiving station due to which the outgoing 11KV feeder was heavily overloaded, especially during winter, with a peak demand of 12 MW leading to forced curtailments. 
With the addition of the Nihalpora Receiving Station to the system, the total load stands equally segregated between the two parts of society by way of the creation of two separate 11KV outgoing feeders instead of one, which in turn will provide better and more reliable power supply to the people of Pattan and Tangmarg, especially during winter.
Meanwhile, Managing Director, KPDCL also visited Shopian on April 19 and reviewed the progress of various electrical works being executed by Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL). These include Augmentations/ Upgradations of already existing 33/11 KV receiving stations at Landoora, Batpora and Reshipora of District Shopian under the PMDP Scheme. 
The MD KPDCL directed the officials of PGCIL and KPDCL to complete the augmentations within the shortest period of time so that the people of district Shopian will be provided with a better quality of power supply round the clock and meet their long pending demands. 
With these augmentations in district Shopian, the overall power handling capacity of these receiving stations will increase from its existing 32.6 MVA to 56.3 MVA. At both districts, MD KPDCL was accompanied by senior officials of KPDCL and PGCIL including SE Sopore (North) and SE Pulwama (South) of KPDCL.
