Bhubaneshwar, : Tata Power led Odisha Discoms, the 4 joint ventures between Tata Power and the Government of Odisha, celebrated ‘Lineman Diwas’ today by recognising and acknowledging the tireless dedication of 21000 linemen and ground maintenance personnel, vital pillars of power distribution working across the state.

The local linemen navigate adversities ranging from natural disasters like cyclones, storms, high temperatures, difficult terrain to technical and operational complexities to ensure uninterrupted power supply and carry out their duties effectively. During Kalbaisakhi instances, also known as Nor’westers, these linemen face numerous challenges, such as fallen trees, uprooted poles, entangled live wires, and sunken roads, while restoring power supply, even in the most remote areas. They play a crucial role in safeguarding and powering crucial establishments like schools, colleges, banks, hospitals etc.

‘Lineman Diwas,’ introduced in 2021, recognizes the tireless dedication of ground maintenance staff vital to the nation’s electricity distribution. The Diwas theme, ‘Seva, Suraksha, Swabhiman,’ encapsulates the selfless service of linemen nationwide. These unsung heroes diligently respond to emergency calls, ensuring prompt repair and maintenance of power lines, instilling confidence in the public for swift restoration of power supply, day-to-day operations and maintenance, addressing technical snags, and facilitating new networks.
