KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Friday asked the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB)to make sure that there will not be any interruption in the power supply on the trekking path from Pampa to Sabarimala.

A Division Bench comprising Justice T R Ramachandran Nair and Justice P V Asha issued the directive while considering a report submitted by Sabarimala Special Commissioner seeking a directive to the KSEB to ensure uninterrupted power supply throughout the Mandalam Makaravilakku season at Sannidhanam, Pampa, Nilakkal and Erumeli. The Commissioner also sought a directive to the Travancore Devaswom Board to provide sufficient number of generators at important points.

The Travancore Devaswom Board submitted that additional generators could be provided on the route from Marakkoottam to Sabarimala and from Saramakuthi along the stretch of the Swami Ayyappan road.

The Bench also sought the view of the KSEB.
