J&K. After Keran, Machil has become the second sector in Kupwara district to get 24-hour power supply the first time after Independence i.e. 74 years after India became a free country.

"Keran got electricity around Independence Day and now in the second phase electricity has reached Machil villages also. Soon, we would be providing electricity to remaining difficult areas too," Principal Secretary (Power- J&K) Rohit Kansal told Leading News Channel NDTV adding that their aim is to provide connectivity to all border areas by next year.

Until now, electricity was being provided to 20 villages in the Machil sector through Diesel Generator (DG) sets but now they would be getting power through electricity grids.
"We have kick-started by providing electricity to nine villages but in the next 20 days all remaining villages would also be getting electricity 24x7 via the grid," Kupwara District Collector Anshul Garg told NDTV adding subsequently about 25,000 people will benefit in this sector alone.
