Electricity is still a hope..
12/06/2008

Centre’s dream project of providing electricity to all the villages (1,25,000 of them), proved to be a non-starter due to lack of responses from States. According to the policy, all State Governments were required to prepare and notify a rural electrification plan to achieve the goal of providing access to all households within six months of the policy being notified. However, not even a single State had forwarded its plans to the Centre by the stipulated deadline.

The Centre, meanwhile, could be looking at limiting the role of Central public sector utilities, including NTPC Ltd. and Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd., in the task of rural electrification. The Government had earlier pressed the CPSUs into service to assist State electricity boards in the work of rural electrification and distribution reforms. The scheme is being implemented by the state-owned Rural Electrification Corporation, which is providing 90 per cent of the capital cost of the programme on behalf of the Centre as grant for creating rural electricity distribution backbone.

Under the proposed rural electrification plan, States should have mapped and detailed the electrification delivery mechanisms (grid or standalone) on an urgent basic. For the purpose of rural electrification, a village would mean a census village.
