Presently the power supply to the valley is through Kishenpur – Wagoora 400 kV D/c, Kishanpur- Pampore 220 kV D/c and Udhampur – Pampore 132 kV D/c. Kishanpur_newwanpho 400 kV D/c is under construction. All the existing and under construction line are rooted through Udhampur – Batote – Banihal – PirPanjal pass. The common corridor of the transmission line is highly prone to snow storm, land slides and other natural calamities making power supply to the Kashmir valley vulnerable. There was a complete collapse of power supply to Kashmir valley on 6th and 7th Jan.'12 due to heavy snowfall and breakdown/tripping of all three existing links between Jammu region and Kashmir valley. Further power supply to Jammu and Kashmir is basically through 400/220 kV Kishanpur substation and there is an immediate need for providing an alternate route for transfer of power from Jammu region to Kashmir valley. Further to need the high load growth anticipated in northern part of Kashmir and to cater to projected loads, a 400/220 kV substation at Amargarh in North Kashmir area is required. Accordingly to mitigate above constraints present scheme has been proposed.

Under the present scheme Establishment of 400/220 kV substation at Amargarh along with Loop in Loop Out (LILO) Uri – Wagoora 400 kV D/c has been proposed. The substation would be further connected to the grid through Jalandhar – Samba – Amargarh 400 kV D/c line. The Samba – Amargarh line should be routed via Akhnoor and Rajouri. This would have dual benefit i.e. the line would be constructed through a different corridor which is away from the existing line corridor as well when the demand in Akhnoor/Rajouri increases new 400 kV substations can be established by LILO of proposed 400 kV Samba – Amargarh line. Amargarh is close to Uri and getting corridor for LILO would be difficult. Accordingly multi circuit towers would be used near Amargarh substation for LILO work. Accordingly following elements are proposed under NRSS-XXIX:
