The Electricity Committee of the Municipal Corporation today decided that a uniform policy will be framed for the installation and augmentation of lights in parks as well as street lights. It was also suggested that the timings of the lights in parks and greenbelts will be fixed in a uniform pattern.

The meeting of the committee was held today under the chairmanship of Arun Sood. The members also decided that the pruning of trees around streetlights should be done by the electrical wing of the MC. The officers were asked to write a letter to the Electricity Department of the Administration for seeking their co-operation in case a complaint is received from an area councillor or the public. It has been a constant complaint of the councillors that the UT Electricity Department does not entertain their complaints.

The committee approved agenda items for installation of streetlights on different roads as well as lights in parks.
