The officials informed PTI that additional power would be drawn from December 23 till January 2 next year through the Indian Energy Exchange.

“We would purchase average additional power to the tune of 1,260 million units during the 11 days,” they said, expressing hope that the additional energy would provide round-the-clock electricity to the people without having to resort to load shedding.

Superintending Engineer, State Load Dispatch Centre, Vanlalrema said the number of units drawn could be variable and depend on power situation.

Vanlalrema said the state’s power requirement had grown considerably while many hydro-electric projects in the northeast region could not manage to generate more power due to less water in rivers. Mizoram has earlier drawn additional power from Tripura during Christmas and New Year every year in exchange for additional power given to the neighbouring state during pujas.

    Please celebrate only crackerless Christmas. Dogs will get frightened by cracker noise. And let there be non-violence against animals during festivities.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Also request to celebrate only boozeless New Year. Rash driving after boozing will kill street dogs and also people sleeping on footpath.
