            It is worth mentioning that the Mhara Gaon, Jagmag Gaon Scheme was started by Chief Minister, Mr. Manohar Lal from Dayalpur village in Kurukshetra district on July 1, 2015. Under this Scheme, the old power cables are replaced by new aerial bunch cables in the villages, while old and malfunctioning meters are replaced, thereafter the villagers are requested to pay the outstanding electricity bills. Thus, as soon as the line loss of the rural feeders reduces, then the village is included in Mhara Gaon, Jagmag Gaon Scheme and a new power infrastructure in the village is built along with 24-hour uninterrupted power supply.
