Govt to draft streetlight policy- Power Minister


Panaji: Power minister Nilesh Cabral today told the House that the government will formulate a streetlight policy for Goa, by which all the streetlights across the State would be brought within the ambit of the electricity department.

Cabral said that the policy will help the department standarise streetlights and maintain all of them. “Once, the policy is in place, we can also cancel the ESL Company’s maintenance contract, which is for ten years,” he said.

“Once, the policy is finalized, we will ask the local bodies to stop collecting the fees from users,” Cabral said responding during Zero Hour mention by NCP MLA Churchill Alemao.
