The state of Jammu & Kashmir was the
second, next only to the state of Mysore
in having hydro power as far back as 1905 when first hydro power plant Mohra was
commissioned. Jammu and Kashmir Power Development Department (JKPDD), presently
headed by Development Commissioner (Power) was established in 1970 to look after
all the functions of power sector viz. Generation, Transmission and
Distribution. However, Generation was later unbundled
and corporatized in 1995. Presently JKPDD is looking after Transmission and
Distribution (T&D) functions only. These functions
have been further entrusted to various wings of the
department. Two Electric Maintenance and Rural Electrification (EM&RE) wings
look after the distribution in Jammu and Kashmir provinces. Two more System and Operation (S&O) wings look
after the Transmission in these two
provinces. Besides, there are three more wings namely, Planning & Design (P&D),
Procurement & Material Management (P&MM) and Commercial & Surveys (C&S) which
support EM&RE and S&O Wings.
