Distribution companies across the globe are plagued with high levels of aggregate technical and commercial losses during power distribution and transmission. In India, these losses are at an agonising high of over 20% in many states which is a pain point for the governments.
The Ministry of Power, Government of India, has approved a Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme- a Reforms-based and Results-linked Scheme with an outlay of Rs.3,03,758 crore. The scheme, spanning a period of five years, 2021-22 to 2025-26, aims to improve the quality, reliability and affordability of power supply to consumers through a financially sustainable and operationally efficient distribution sector.
The Scheme aims to reduce the AT& C losses to pan-India levels of 12-15% and the Average Cost of Supply-Average Revenue Realized (ACSARR) gap to zero by 2024-25 by improving the operational efficiencies and financial sustainability of all DISCOMs/ Power Departments excluding Private Sector DISCOMs.
