New Delhi,Jul 22 :Power supply in Mayur Vihar phase I and housing societies and commercial complexes along the Akshardham-Noida road is likely to be affected for the next two days as discom is shifting the electricity towers to make way for setting up of a 'East Delhi-Haat'.
"Power supply may be affected on July 23 and 24, between 10 am and 5 pm, in housing societies and commercial complexes along the Akshardham-Noida road, particularly in Mayur Vihar I as BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) have to take a planned shutdown in the area for removal of the electricity towers," a BYPL spokesperson said in a statement.
There is a proposal to set-up a 'East Delhi-Haat' near the Akashardham-Noida road in East Delhi. Like the other 'Delhi-Haats', this handicrafts promotion centre, when completed, will be a major tourist attraction, both for Delhiites and the foreign alike.
"The scope of the project requires BYPL to remove the electricity towers installed on the Akshardham-Noida road. The company has started the process of dismantling and removing the electricity towers installed on the Akshardham -Noida road," he said.
In place of these towers, BYPL has already laid underground electricity cables.
"Though BYPL has back-fed the area, there is still a possibility that the power supply may be affected to the housing societies and commercial complexes along the Akshardham-Noida road, particularly in Mayur Vihar I," the statement said.
The 'East Delhi Haat' will be supplied electricity from BYPL' Vasundhara Enclave Grid.
Earlier, the electricity towers installed on the connecting national highway (NH) 24 via Hasanpur-Max Hospital have already been removed and cables shifted underground.
