Energy Minister Shobha Karandlaje has said that the power situation in the State is good and there will be no load shedding as of now.

Speaking to presspersons, during her visit Ramakrishna Sevashrama, in Puttur on Tuesday, she said there will be uninterrupted power supply for the farmers. The farmers will be supplied with three phase electricity for six hours and single phase between 6 pm and 8 am.

“We did not face much difficulty during last summer. The small and major industries have functioned without any hurdle. We have plans to produce 5,000 mega watt electricity in the next five years and supply it to the grid. We have already reached 4,250 mega watt electricity production in the State,” she added.

The UPCL is already generating 600 mega watt electricity. The second unit at Bellary is generating 500 mega watt electricity. The eighth unit at Raichur has started functioning. There will be no major crisis during summer, she added.


To start a power generation unit in Chattisgarh, the Chattisgarh government has given us land and water. The State government has earmarked Rs 250 crore.

As the Centre failed to supply coal, the project has not seen much progress. Another electricity generation unit will start functioning at Bidadi shortly, she added.

Minister watches movie


Karandlaje had visited the Ashram along with her mother Poovakka, sister-in-law Mohini and family members and celebrated Deepavali with the kids. Later, she along with the kids watched ‘Sangolli Rayanna’ movie at a theatre.

Speaking after watching the movie, she called upon the children to remember the sacrifices of great leaders. “The life of Sangolli Rayanna should be model for us.”

Ramakrishna Sevashrama President Subrahmanya Kolathaya, and others were present.
