UJALA, a central government scheme for distribution of LED bulbs at subsidized rates has been launched in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The scheme launch was marked by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday by distributing the LED bulbs among the people.

Under the UJALA scheme in J&K, consumers can purchase upto 5 LED bulbs at a rate of Rs. 20 each bulb by showing their electricity bill or the identity cards. If the consumers want to purchase more than 5 bulbs, charges will be Rs. 95 per bulb.

The scheme is expected to bring the electricity bill down for the consumers and saves the electricity for the state & for the nation as well.

At present, there are about 80 Lakh inefficient bulbs in the state, if all replaced with the LED bulbs, it will save a lot of energy. The power consumption of an LED bulb is just about one tenth of the normal yellow bulb.

7 and 9 watt bulbs are being distributed under the UJALA scheme across the nation.
