After 70 years of Independence, Darjeeling Hills village Dara Gaon gets electricity

70 years after independence Dara Gaon and neighboring villages under Rimbick-Lodhoma samesty finally got connected to electricity yesterday.

Remember Ramam Hydel Projects which is also in Rimbick-Lodhoma samesty, one of the oldest in Bengal, has been in operation for nearly 30 years now, yet the villages right next to it had to wait for this long to get electric connection. While the electricity generated from Ramam was used to light-up towns and cities in the plains, Dara Gaon residents were deprived of this basic facility.

To the happiness is no less than a blessing to these villagers here.

We hope that in near future all the villages across the Gorkha Territorial Administration (GTA) region will have electricity, road, drinking water, health care and access to quality education.
