Anganwadi centres in Kerala to be completely electrified

Thiruvananthapuram: All anganwadi centres in Kerala will be completely electrified soon. A recent meeting, attended by Health-Women and Child Development minister Veena George and Power Minister K. Krishnankutty, decided to completely electrify all childcare centres as part of plans to improve the infrastructure facilities.

According to the state Social Justice Department figures, there are 33,115 anganwadi centres functioning in Kerala.

Of them, 2,256 centres in various districts are yet to get the power supply, an official statement said.

The anganwadis, which are not electrified even after the wiring works are completed, would be provided the connection on a war footing, it said.

Details of those buildings, where the wiring process was progressing, should be handed over to the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) within one month after completing the pending works.

KSEB would allot electric post free of cost to those anganwadis, if it is necessary for its electrification process, after including them in concerned schemes. Asianet Online
