Services in Chamba

It is true that the district of Chamba is one of the most underdeveloped districts of the country. It is mainly because of its hilly and difficult terrain that facilities could not reach the far flung areas. However, the city of Chamba has been least affected by such conditions. It offers all kinds of services required for leading a modern life. The most important among them are the water and electric supply.

Water Supply in Chamba

The city of Chamba is one of the ancient cities of India, where the residents enjoyed water supply from its very inception. Indeed, Raja Sahil Varman, who established Chamba in 920 AD, brought water to the city from Sarotha Nallah via a channel dug around the Shah Madar Hill. Today however, Sarotha and Sal Nallah are the two main sources of drinking water for Chamba town and the Municipal Council of Chamba is mainly responsible for the job. For queries and complains you may contact the Municipal Council at 01899-222422/ 224500.

Electric Supply in Chamba

Electricity in Chamba

It may sound unbelievable, but Chamba is the 2nd oldest city to have electricity in India. Bhuri Singh Power House was established in 1908 by Raja Bhuri Singh to provide electricity to the town. At that time only Kolkata, the then capital of India, had electric supply in the country. Rest of the country had to do with other means of illumination.

Bhuri Singh Power House is a hydroelectricity project on River Sal. It is located on the Chamba Bypass Road and has an installed capacity of 0.45 MW. Although it was set up so many years ago it is fully functioning even now. Chamera I with an installed capacity of 540 MW is another hydroelectricity project in the vicinity. Both these projects are now owned by the Government of Himachal Pradesh.
