    24 hours free current for farmers of Telangana, a real new year gift from KCR

    Telangana has been surging ahead as the most happening state, first with the Industry starters by establishing the T-hub, then successfully hosting the International Entrepreneurs meet, then inaugurating the longest metro rail by the PM Modi. and now with great surprise the CM of Telangana K Chandrasekhara Rao has announced free power to the farm sector 24 hours and 365 days which was firs of its kind in the country. When the other states are hardly giving free current for four or five hours, TRS government gives 24 hours free current which was the real new year gift to the farming community . Any comment ?

    Already Telangana is having many Industries. Now the government announcing 24 hours power supply to the Industries and Agriculture, the chances for Telangana developing further are very high. Today Chief Minister appreciated all the state electricity board employees and sanctioned them an additional increment as a recognition of their good work. It is his new year gift to them. Now with this decision of 24 hours power supply, the farmers can think of better crop and yields so that they will not have any problems. We should appreciate the government for this achievement. In the entire Telangana, the complete concentration for development is concentrated in and around Hyderabad only. Now with this move, if the farmers of other places are also getting good returns I hope load on Hyderabad will come down. The government should also encourage industries in other places. That will give an improvement al over the state.

    It would be a welcome gesture and a huge relief to the needy farmers, this would help them tide over there expenses to a little extent. But such programs make a dent in the state exchequer and open to misuse. There would be many farms and small industrial units which will take the benefit of the free supply of electricity when it should be truly used by the poor farmers. Hope it's use is regulated and help in improving the lives of the farmers.

    I was just reading this morning about the Punjab farm loan waiver scheme. A millionaire in a chit fund scam has claimed benefits of Rs 1.74 lakhs. There are reports that genuine beneficiaries are not getting what they want. Although not a big amount, this shows the loopholes in such schemes for farmers. Such similar issues should be dealt with firmly at the free electricity scheme also.

    Yes there are reports that the farmers are switching on the motors at the fields even though water is less or nil in the wells and bore wells thereby wasting the free current.
