It is estimated that for building over 1,00,000 MW of additional power capacity and associated
transmission & distribution infrastructure, nearly Rs. 8,00,000 crores of investments would be needed in
the next decade.
The problem of non-availability of escrow capacity with most State utilities has been holding up the
financial closure of most private sector projects. In view of the current policy against giving counter
guarantees and pending fructification of reforms measures, the Ministry has taken steps to set up
alternate payment security mechanism for the investors as an interim resource mobilisation strategy.
The mechanism has been evolved in consultation with leading financial institutions like IDBI, ICICI, SBI
Caps etc. on the basis of a memorandum of agreement/ understanding to be signed with the reforming
States wherein the States agree on milestone based package of reforms like restructuring of SEBs,
setting up of SERCs, reduction in T&D losses, 100% metering, improvement in PLF, energy audit etc.
The policy framework has also been liberalised to encourage domestic/Foreign Direct Investment in
power sector. The measures taken in this regard include allowing Foreign Direct Investments in
generation, transmission, distribution and power trading on the automatic route without any monetary
ceiling.
