Taking a considerate view of the matter, the LG asked the District Administration to ensure electrification of the remote village within one month and the quick action by District Administration, the herculean task of electrifying the remote village was completed in a record time of 15 days.
Acting upon the directions of LG, the District Administration, in coordination with the Jammu Power Development Corporation Limited (JPDCL) and Shalaka officials, started the work on war footing despite adverse weather conditions, which made the task extremely difficult. To celebrate the historical moment with the villagers, DDC, Doda Dr Sagar Doifode visited the village and formally declared it as electrified by lighting up a bulb amid huge rounds of applause by elated locals.
