In his Adress PM said, 'To solve the problem of electricity, the transmission system has been improved. Now along with Bundelkhand, the power system will be improved in many areas of Western UP. Power generated will be transmitted to different regions through the Western and Northern grid.'
 
The project involves establishment of Extra High Voltage (EHV) Sub-stations at Orai Gas Insulated Sub-station (GIS) & Aligarh Gas Insulated Sub-station (GIS) along with high capacity power transmission corridor between northern and western grids. It will strengthen the inter-regional transmission corridor and facilitate the reliable supply of power to Orai, Aligarh & adjoining areas of Western UP and Bundelkhand.

This project constructed by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID), a Navratna Company of Government of India, under Ministry of Power, will make Orai a key Sub-station to feed the demand of Orai and adjoining areas of western UP and Bundelkhand region. It will also give huge boost to the tourism sector and will enhance socio-economic development, as quality power will be distributed to homes, agricultural setups, business establishments and industries of the region. The cost of the project is about Rs. 4976 Crore.
 
The event was attended by a graceful gathering in Jhansi, in the gracious presence of Shri Ram Naik, the Governor, Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath,  CM, Uttar Pradesh, Sushri Uma Bharti, Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation, and other  MPs and MLAs of Uttar Pradesh government.
