At present, one has to pay between Rs 3,000 and Rs 4,000 to get a power connection. "The state government has initiated several schemes which have helped in reducing the losses of the Power Department by 7 per cent," Mr Khattar said, as quoted by the release.
Villages where line losses have been reduced by 20 per cent are getting 24-hour power supply. Four districts Panchkula, Ambala, Gurugram and Faridabad, are getting 24-hour power supply.
"The previous governments had been only instigating the people not to pay their bills, but we are explaining and encouraging them to pay bills," he added.
