Solar lights for Himachal shepherds

The state government, through an announcement, has said that sheep breeders in Himachal Pradesh will be provided highly subsidised solar lights to make life easier for them.

The chief minister, P K Dhumal, said each solar light after being fully charged will work for nine hours. For each such solar light, the state government will pay Rs 2,550 while a sheep breeder will have to pay only Rs 150.

Sheep farming is still practised by many farmers in Himachal, particularly in the mid and high mountains of the state.

For the benefit of the shepherd community, the state government, according to the chief minister, has also provided the facility of a toll free number 1800 180 8006 to communicate their problems.

Dhumal disclosed this while opening a wool grading plant and a marketing centre at Banuri in the Kangra valley built at a cost of over Rs 2.3 crore.

The wool grading plant includes loose wool carbonising plant, wool store, scientific storage of wool, wool grading hall, wool press machine, perplex sheet roofing shed on open space for wool drying and other related activities.
