Electrification project(s) based on grid extensions as well as stand alone electrification project based on distributed generation would be eligible for capital subsidy which would interalia cover electrification of all un electrified villages in the state and electrification of rural households. The projects shall cover electrification of un-electrified villages (census villages) as on 31st March. Govt. of India has approved a new scheme for electrification of one lakh villages and one crore house hold and the guide lines were issued by MoP.2007 and extends universal access of power to all the households including the poor and downtrodden sections of the society for supplying power to them at concessional tariff by 2012. The projects would have universal obligation to provide electricity to all consumers on demand and at least 10% of the house hold in each village together with provision of electricity to public places school Panchayat office health centre etc. In addition. 3. of India has approved a new scheme for “Electrification of one lakh villages and one Crore households”. the scheme may also cover deelectrified villages as a case by case basis. The scheme should be implemented through Rural Electrification Corporation which may associate other financial institutions and central power sector undertakings in the implantation of the programme.
