“One day our transformer is being repaired but the very next day it gets damaged again and again and same process continues now since many months,” said a local resident.
He said that due to heavy load on the transformer, it gets damaged frequently.
Another local said that 63 KVA transformer was installed in the area long back nd since then the population and the number of households has more than tripled.
Locals demanded that government must take cognizance of the issue before winter and install a high capacity transformer in the area.
