INTRODUCTION
Power sector plays a very important role in transforming the economy into an industrially developed economy. The power sectors are required to function as autonomous corporate entities and to have independent, transparent and democratic regulations to guide and monitor their efficient, economical and competitive functions in commercial lines. The state of ODISHA is the unique distinction of being power pioneer in the country undertaking reform and restructuring in the power sector of the state. In 10 states of India, the private sector is operating to produce power to the extent of 1316.15MW.If we look at the region wise, northern region produces the highest hydro power in the private sector followed by western region (460.50MW) and southern region (55.45), but it is surprising to note that private sector is not operating to produce power in the private sector. In the Eastern region, Odisha tops the list of generation of power, out of 2496.53MW produced in the total eastern region of odisha alone produces 2062 MW of hydro power.Its is surprising to note that private sector are not allowed to produce power in this state. Odisha is the first state of the country to take up the power sector reforms to ensure stable & quality power at reasonable cost. The department of energy was created in 24 th April 1990 being separated from the Dept. of water resources..Presently three public sector undertakings viz: Grid Corporation of Odisha Limited (GRIDCO), Odisha Hydro Power Corporation Limited(OHPC), and Odisha Power Generation Corporation Limited(OPGC) are functioning under the administrative control of Dept. of energy, Govt. of Orissa. The Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission (OREC) which is a quasi judicial independent body ensures transparent regulatory measures in the power sector of the state.Out of these three public undertakings, OHPC is selected for the purpose of the present study. Odisha Hydro Power Corporation Limited was formed in terms of Odisha Electricity Reforms Act 1995 and the hydro power generating stations of Govt. of Odisha as well as erstwhile OSEB were transferred to the control of OHPC as per the Odisha Electricity Reform (Tansfer of

Undertakings, Assets, Liabillities, Proceedings and Personnel) Scheme Rules 1996 and Amendment Rules 1997.It is a Govt. of Odisha Undertaking and was incorporated on 21 st April 1995. The efficient resource management by the process of automation has resulted in providing cheapest electricity to the people of Odisha. OHPC plays an important role in maintaining Grid discipline under the ABT regime for the Eastern regional Grid by supporting peak support.

INCORPORATION OF OHPC
As a result of Orissa Electricity Reforms Act 1995 and the Odisha Reforms OHPC, was registered under ICA on 21st April 1995, which became operational with effect from 1st April 1996 as per notification no.335 and 336.Initially all the assets, liabilities and proceedings acquired by State Government as well as those owned by it into generation, transmission and distribution undertakings. Those which could not be classified above were treated as residuary assets, liabilities and proceedings initiated. Being a newly set up corporation with employees from erstwhile OSEB, ex- employees of State Government and also employees directly recruited by OHPC, the HRD wing, faced various challenges to meet multifarious problems in interaction of such employees into a cohesive group to achieve organizational goals. In overall, There are seven hydro power projects viz: Hirakud-I, Burla, Hirakud-II (Chiplima), Balimela, Rengali, Upper Kolab, Upper Indravati, Machkund, which are under operation. Two units of Balimela Hydro Electric Project and Balimela Extension Project has been completed with a installed capacity of 2x75 MW.
