An ambitious plan by Dhaka Electric Supply Company Ltd to send the overhead electric cables underground in the city’s posh areas has to wait.
How long? Not even the utility company has an answer.
And it has itself to blame for the uncertainty over the Tk. 240 crore-project.
The company has failed to meet its March 30 deadline to place its proposal to the funding agency Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The company had planned to take its all overhead electric cables underground in the Gulshan, Banani, Baridhara and Badda areas following directives from the Power Division of the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources.
