Residents of Bancha village in Madhya Pradesh’s Betul district are heaving a sigh of relief courtesy a project by Central Goverment. Because of the project, residents of all 74 houses in the village are now able to use solar energy to cook food.
Induction plates that use solar energy to cook food have been installed outside all houses in the village as part of a trial project by Central Government. The model for this technology was prepared by students of IIT Bombay.
The residents of the village told ANI: “We don’t have to go forests and spend time collecting woods for fire anymore. Utensils and walls don’t get blackened now. Food also gets cooked on time. It saves a lot of effort and time.”
