RAPDRP has transformed the state power distribution companies and touched 10 million lives across Rajasthan.
Burgeoning Losses in India´s Power Sector
Aggregate Technical & Commercial (AT&C) losses are considered to be an Achilles heel of India´s power sector. Problems in power distribution companies (discom) have accentuated over the years, mainly in the form of inadequate metering and data collection systems in place. AT&C losses of the three Rajasthan discoms are currently at Rs.12,000 crore per year, with the combined losses of the three utilities pegged at Rs.90,000 crore. The utilities have a target to reduce the AT&C losses to 15 per cent in the next five years through continuous improvement.
R-APDRP, launched by the Centre, envisages establishment of baseline data, fixation of accountability, reduction of AT&C losses etc., through strengthening of sub-transmission and distribution network and adoption of information technology (IT).
