Gurpreet Singh Kangar said that the new store would be constructed on PSPCL property at 66 KV Sub-station Colony opposite to Division Office at Bhagta Bhai ka having area of approx. 2.5 acres. The cost of construction of Building & equipment etc. would be 160 lacs. approximately.
The construction work of the Out let store would be completed within 6 months. While giving details about the major advantages of opening this new outlet store Sh. Kangar added that Bhagta Bhai ka Division is presently being fed from Central store Bathinda. The sub divisions under Bhagta Bhai Ka Division viz. Bhagta Bhai Ka & Bhai Rupa are approx.. 50 Kms from Central store Bathinda. Even Nathana Sub Division under this Division is approx. 30 Km. away from Central Store Bathinda. By constructing this new Outlet Store the distance of these sub-divisions would come down in the range of 10 Kms which will save considerable time &cost of transportation. 2. Further, 4 no. sub divisions namely Baja-Khanna, Patto-Hira Singh, Samadh Bhai and Bilaspur under Faridkot circle which are presently connected with Central Store Kotkapura and quite near to Bhagta Bhai ka town would be connected with new outlet store at Bhagta Bhai ka. The distance of these S/divns from central store Kotkapura is varying between 25 to 60 Kms. By connecting these s/divns with new outlet store at Bhagta Bhai Ka, these distances would come down in the range of 11 to 40 Kms at the most, thus saving considerable time in supply of material to these locations. Approx. 1,30,000 consumers of 112 no. towns/ villages under various categories falling under Bhagta Bhai Ka, Bhagha Purana & Kotkapura Divns. would immensely benefit by being fed from this new outlet store at Bhagta Bhai ka . This would avoid difficulties presently being faced by the aforesaid 7 Nos. sub/divns with regard to safer & faster shifting of new material and ease of return of dismantled material from site on regular basis thus expediting the release of new connections. The new outlet store at Bhagta Bhai ka would improve the efficiency of Store Organisation and better consumer services. Further, it would also reduce the transportation time of material to all these 7 no. sub divisionsand would help in early restoration of supply in case of damaged transformers especially during the Paddy Season.
