The 24×7 power supply to all in a commitment made by the Indian Government with the objective of reviving and enhancing the country’s economic growth. The root cause of contradiction between universal electrification, surplus power and the inability of supplying it round the clock to each and every household is a “debt” which burdens the state-owned electricity distribution companies – DISCOMs, impairing their nationwide capability of building & maintaining power grids & equipment. Additionally, states’ inability or refusal for increasing electricity bills had also led to an increase in borrowing & power shortages which in turn have made DISCOMs to be reluctant in buying available electricity. This has ultimately resulted continuation of blackouts & erratic
supply of power.
