About 90 per cent of the rural areas in Dala township can now access electricity. According to the Township Electricity Manger’s Office, only six villages remain to have access to electricity.
There are 54 villages in 23 village-tracts of Dala township in the Yangon region. Only six villages need to access electricity. Therefore, all the villages will have access to electricity very soon.
“In 2020-2021, only six villages are left to install electricity. These villages are Kyutawyo village, Chaw Lae Wa village, Wae Gyi village, Thayaw Than village, Thayargone village and Nyaung Laybin village. The 400-volt power lines and 11 kV power lines have also been installed. The electricity could be supplied after the installation of the meter boxes. Now, about 90 per cent have accessed the electricity, said an official from the Township Electricity Manger’s Office.
The electricity from 33/6.6 kV and 15+5 MVA transformer in Dala township and 33/11 kV and 5 MVA transformer in Pyawbwegyi village have already been distributed to 54 villages, including 24 wards and 23 village-tracts in Dala town.
The locals in Dala township have lagged in development on account of poor access to transportation. Now, transportation is getting better, and electricity is now available in their villages. Therefore, the education, health, social, economic and the lifestyle of the local residents will be developed. —Naing Lin Kyaw (Dala)/GNLM
