KPDCL said that the Expression of Interest Document has been floated online.

“Vendor empanelment is live as of now. Once they are empanelled, the scheme will be formally launched, extending benefit of Government subsidy to the intended beneficiaries,” said the communique. It also asked the vendors to approach the office of Chief Engineer (Distribution) at Srinagar to facilitate the process.
