Pulwama: The unit holders at industrial estate Lassipora in Pulwama district have complained of frequent power cuts saying that their output has been hit during the peak season.
The industrial estate established by State Industrial Development Corporation (SIDCO) in Lassipora area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district is the biggest industrial estate in south Kashmir.
The unit holders said that their whole system works on electricity but in absence of electricity they are suffering badly as their output has taken a severe hit.
“It is bizarre and deplorable that power outages are happening in industrial estates. The machinery worth lakhs of rupees is defunct due to unscheduled power cuts in the SIDCO complex Lassipora,” they said.
“We have already suffered due to clampdown and back to back lockdowns and now power outage is taking a heavy toll on us,” they added.
“Every year there are new challenges and this year power outage is creating problems to around 300 unit holders in the estate,” they added.
They requested concerned authorities to look into the matter and make immediate arrangements so that scheduled power supply will be available and unit holders won’t face losses again this year.
