Amravati: A remote tribal village in Maharashtra got electrified after 70 years of independence.

Amravati's Bulumgavhan received electricity under the initiative of Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana - 'Saubhagya'.

According to reports, around 105 homes have received electricity in the village.

One of the villagers said, "It was difficult when there was no electricity, our children could not study after it turned dark. We are very happy now."

The village sets an ideal example of collective efforts by the government and the villagers themselves.

With a population of just over 500, nearest town from the village is at a distance of 112 Km. The Rural Development Fellows Scheme under the Government played a key role in the development.

The villagers were overjoyed and filled with enthusiasm with the development.
