SEVENTEEN of 18 villages in Salin, Magwe Region, were covered in the priority phase of the national electrification plan, Union Minister U Pe Zin Tun said yesterday in response to a query at the Amyotha Hluttaw, explaining that the villages were located within a distance of two miles from the national grid.
U Pe Zin Tun said the project would start in two years and that the remaining villages had been put in the second phase of the national electrification plan.
Responding to a query of the installation of the power grid cable in Yay township of Mon State, the union minister responded that negotiation was under way with the Ministry of Planning and Finance to carry out the project using loans from the Asia Development Bank (ADB). When permitted, the project will install a 230KV power grid in the township.
The union minister also responded to queries relating to the distribution of electricity from the national grid to Maungtaw town, Rakhine State and Paletwa town of Chin State, pledging continued efforts to bring electricity to those areas in the coming fiscal year.
