Governments of regions and states sought funds for construction of small sub-power stations, 11 KV power lines and 400 volt power lines in 2014-15 fiscal year. Magway region government plans to coordinate allotment of a fund for installation of 11 KV power line in coming fiscal years.
U Salai Khwe Yan of Chin State Constituency No 12 asked whether there is a plan to supply electricity to Paletwa Township, Chin State, located on India-Myanmar Asian Highway. Deputy Minister U Aung Than Oo replied that Kyauktaw region in Rakhine State is being supplied electricity through 66 KV Ponnagyun-Kyauktaw power line and sub-power station as of 30 November 2014. A project must be implemented to electrify Paletwa region by building a 66-KV Kyauktaw-Paletwa power line and a sub-power station. Installation of power line and transformer for Paletwa region is expected to cost K12.235 billion except the expenditure for installation of power line to villages. Depending on the budget allotment of the government, the project will be implemented in 2015-16 fiscal year. MNA
