Union Minister of State for Power K.C. Venugopal said that Alappuzha will be included in the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) part of the Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Project (RAPDRP) soon.
As of now, Alappuzha is included in the Part A and B of the RAPDRP. The RAPDRP sanctioned for 42 towns in the State is being implemented in three parts — Part A, B and SCADA. Part A consists of setting up an IT-based data base line, which will be setup in towns with a population of more than 30,000. Part B will focus on bringing down losses in power transmission and distribution.
