DISCOMs/ Power Departments would be able to access funds under the Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme-Scheme for Pre-paid Smart Metering, System Metering and Distribution infrastructure works for loss reduction and modernisation.

Implementation of the Scheme would lead to consumer empowerment by way of prepaid Smart metering to be implemented in Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) mode and leveraging Artificial Intelligence to analyze data generated through IT/OT devices including System Meters, prepaid Smart meters to prepare system generated energy accounting reports every month to enable DISCOMs to take informed decisions on loss reduction, demand forecasting, Time of Day (ToD) tariff, Renewable Energy (RE) Integration and for other predictive analysis.

India’s ‘Powerful’ Infrastructure

An efficient electricity infrastructure is essential for the success of any modern economy. As a result of the implementation of several schemes, India has achieved universal electricity access by connecting ~28 million households in 18 months. This was the largest expansion of access anywhere in the world in such a time frame.

Implementation of schemes has also resulted in improved access to electricity. An independent survey shows that an average Indian household gets almost 20.6 hours of power supply every day, with urban areas getting 22-24 hours and rural areas getting 20 hours.

Steps have also been taken for automation and use of Information Technology (IT) in Distribution Sector which includes the establishment of Data Centres, GIS mapping of consumers, Asset Mapping, Online energy auditing & accounting, Consumer care centres, AMI meters on feeders & Distribution Transformers, provision of Smart Metering to reduce losses etc. in urban areas.

The Pain Points And Solutions

Despite the government’s efforts and measures, consumers do not get reliable 24x7 electricity in many parts of the country. Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT & C) losses and the Average Cost of Supply-Average Revenue Realized (ACSARR) gap continue to be high. The DISCOMs need to focus on improving their operational efficiencies & financial sustainability; and improve consumer services to be able to meet the desired consumer service standards.

This requires large scale reforms in Distribution Sector and schemes that would enable the DISCOMs to reduce losses to make them financially sustainable and operationally efficient.It is with this aim and the Government of India’s commitment for providing 24x7 uninterrupted, quality, reliable and affordable power supply, that the Revamped Reforms Based and Results Linked Distribution Sector Scheme has been formulated by Ministry of Power for supporting DISCOMs to undertake reforms and improve performance in a time bound manner.

The Scheme seeks to improve the operational efficiencies and financial sustainability, by providing financial assistance to DISCOMs for strengthening of supply infrastructure based on meeting pre-qualifying criteria and achieving basic minimum benchmarks in reforms.

Facilitating in installing prepaid smart meters for all consumers along with associated AMI, communicable meters for DTs & Feeders, ICT including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), etc. based solutions for power Sector and a unified billing and collection system

An analytics solution and services can help to:
