[TamilNet, Tuesday, 14 October 2008, 12:13 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) authorities in Palaali SLA Head Quarters instructed Jaffna Sri Lanka Electricity Board (SLEB) to reduce the power cut imposed daily to 30 minutes, from the current 90 minutes with effect from Monday, in a high level meeting held with the SLEB officials who were summoned to the meeting. The new directive is to be carried out on a trial basis, SLA said.

The present power cut imposed from 6:00 p.m daily very much affects the activities of the peninsula residents, specially students engaged in educational activities, civil society sources in the peninsula said.

Meanwhile, high level Political officials are to visit Jaffna peninsula when China donated electricity generators installed in Chu'n'naakam SLEB complex start supplying power to the peninsula 24 hours a day, on an inauguration date still not known, local media reports said.
