Sterlite Power of Vedanta Group- a major player in transmission sector has commissioned the 414 km long Northern Region Strengthening Scheme 29 (NRSS 29). The project also involved strengthening three 400 kV Double Circuit transmission lines and one 400/220 kV GIS Substation to deliver over 1,000 MW of electricity from Punjab to the Kashmir Valley by strengthening the National Grid.
Currently, the state of Jammu and Kashmir faces blackouts during winter, now with strengthening of the grid and future connection with IndiGrid will address all shortfalls. Once the operations of J&K transmission line gets stabilized, it could as well be transferred to the InVit and become part of IndiGrid.
