VIJAYAWADA: Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation (GETCO) is all praise for APTRANSCO for its measures in containing line losses.

GETCO officials, who are in the State to study the initiatives to reduce transmission and distribution losses, said the AP Energy Department is emerging as a role model for other States in various aspects of energy sector. GETCO chief finance manager Jayaneesh Modi, finance manager Ronak Sacheti, Sharad Puranik visited Vidyut Soudha in Vijayawada for two days to study various aspects of power transmission, distribution, finance management and technical upgrade methods being adopted by APTRANSCO. Higher officials of the APTRANSCO, including Gupta Balasubramanian, Harinath Babu explained the Gujarat team about the latest initiatives.

Impressed with initiatives of APTRANSCO to bring down transmission and distribution losses by less than 10 per cent, Jayaneesh and others said transmission losses in Andhra Pradesh are far less than Gujarat, which is considered a developed State. They also lauded the measures adopted for inventory control and capitalisation of assets.

They said they will take measures to adopt the paperless office and system applications in APTRANSCO in their GETCO in the coming days. On the occasion, they suggested the APTRANSCO officials to consider adopting funds pooling scheme that is being implemented in public sector units in Gujarat, which they opined can benefit APTRANSCO more.  They invited AP energy department officials to visit GETCO headquarters in Baroda.
