Odisha Govt To Distribute Free Led Bulbs to 95 lakh Food Security Beneficiaries

Odisha Govt To Distribute Free Led Bulbs to 95 lakh Food Security Beneficiaries

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched “Ama Ghare LED” scheme to provide LED bulbs to the people at free of cost.

Under the scheme, all the beneficiary registered under National Food Security Act (NFSA) and State Food Security Scheme (SFSS) will get four numbers of 9 Watt LED bulbs each free of cost.

Around 95 lakhs of such households will be benefited under this scheme.

Speaking to media, Energy secretary Hemant Sharma said, “Through this scheme, each family of 95 lakh NFSA and SFSS beneficiaries will be provided with four LED bulbs free of cost,” said

“This bulb is of high quality. Its market price is now over Rs 300. By using this, the electricity bill will be less,” he added.

Due to non-availability of quality LED Bulbs at reasonable price in rural markets of Odisha, consumers are using incandescent/ CFL bulbs for which they are paying higher electricity bills. Rather, the energy demand of the state is increasing by such high energy consumption, said a release.
OFTCL being the nodal organization will be implementing this scheme, the LED bulbs will be distributed at PDS outlets as well as in PEETHA camp.
