314 villages electrified last week

New Delhi: Three hundred fourteen villages have been electrified across the country in the last week (from 29 February to 6 March) under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY). Out of these electrified villages, 93 are in Uttar Pradesh, 41 in Odisha, 40 in Assam, 40 in Chhattisgarh, 31 in Arunachal Pradesh, 30 in Jharkhand, 19 in Bihar, 16 in and 4 in Rajasthan. The progress of ongoing electrification process can be tracked on this site.

In view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation on the Independence Day of 2015, the government decided to electrify the 18,452 un-electrified villages within 1,000 days — by 1 May 2018. The project has been taken on a mission mode. The strategy for electrification involves squeezing the implementation schedule to 12 months and also dividing village electrification process into 12 stage milestones with defined timelines for monitoring.

During 2015-16, 6,156 villages have been electrified till now. Out of the remaining 12,296 villages, 8,496 villages are to be electrified through grid, 3,312 villages are to be electrified through off-grid (because grid solutions are out of reach here due to geographical barriers) and 488 villages are to be electrified by State governments.

A total of 1,654 villages were electrified between April and Aug 2015. After the government switched to a mission mode, 4,502 additional villages have been electrified from 15August 2015 to 6 March 2016. In order to expedite the process further, Gram Vidyut Abhiyantas (GVA — village electrical engineers) are closely monitoring the progress and various actions are being taken on a regular basis like reviewing the progress monthly during the RPM meeting, sharing of the list of villages that are at the stage of under-energisation with the state distribution companies and identifying the villages where milestone progress is delayed.
