In view of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to nation, on Independence Day, Government of India has decided to electrify remaining 18,452 un-electrified villages within 1000 days, that is by 01st May, 2018.  The project has been taken on mission mode and strategy for electrification consists of squeezing the implementation schedule to 12 months and also dividing electrification process in 12 Stage milestones with defined timelines for monitoring.

Out of remaining 11959 villages, 8219 villages are to be electrified through grid, 3267 villages are to be electrified through off-grid where grid solutions are out of reach due to geographical barriers and 473 villages are to be electrified by State Govt own. Total 1654 villages were electrified during April 2015 to 14 Aug 2015 and after taking initiative by Government of India for taking it on mission mode, 4839 additional villages have been electrified from 15 August 2015 to 13 March 2016.
