|City beautification and public safety drive by APDCL|
GUWAHATI, Oct 14 - As part of beautification of the city and public safety, the Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL) has been installing DTR fencing at several locations across the city. The transformers and wires which were earlier unfenced and unprotected had caused several mishaps especially during the rainy season. But now with the fencing in place the public can be assured of safety when close to any transformer.

Numerous cases of transformer and power-related accidents have been reported throughout the country. In Guwahati too, such cases occur more often than not, adding to the general public’s distress over danger posed by high voltage electric transformers.
With vulnerability and safety measures for the pedestrians and general public in mind, the transformers in the city’s busy and flash flood-prone areas have been fenced off.
