Over 1,000 LED strings ready to illuminate Govt buildings on I-Day
More than 1,000 LED light strings prepared by women Self Help Groups (SHGs) of the Dehradun district will be used to illuminate several government buildings on the occasion of 74th Independence Day. The installation of these lights will commence from Thursday and will be completed by August 14.
Talking about the assembling of these LED light strings, the chief development officer (CDO) Nitika Khandelwal said that thousands of women of SHGs are making the LED light strings but most of them are trainees so it will take some time to increase the rate of production of these decorative lights. Furthermore, she said that these string lights are better than the Chinese ones as these lights do not get easily damaged in rain and their shelf life is also longer than the Chinese lights. Moreover, the project director of District Rural Development Agency (DRDA), Vikram Singh said that various government buildings will be decorated on the occasion of this Independence Day. These include the collectorate camp office, Clock Tower, MSME directorate and the buildings of Vikas Bhawan and Uttarakhand State Rural Livelihood Mission (USRLM). Singh further informed that each LED light string made by SHGs is 6.6 metres long and more than 1000 such decorative lights will be installed but the speciality of these lights is that they are designed to form a tri-colour pattern like the national flag. It is pertinent to mention here that the production of about 2,000 LED string lights was being undertaken by SHGs to illuminate the important buildings of Dehradun on August 15 and the plan to do the same on occasion of Deepawali is under process too.
