Under Ind AS, Financial Statements Will Have A Face Off
The power sector in India is highly regulated, with continuing regulator's involvement in pricing, security of supply and extensively capital intensive. Till 1991, the whole infrastructure sector (of which power is a part) was primarily under government ownership, but due to severe foreign exchange crisis and a lack of capital for expanding infrastructure capacity, the Indian government allowed private foreign and Indian investments in the sector.

Matching T And D infra to generation capacity critical
For several decades now, the power sector has focused its activity on the augmentation of its generation capacity in order to cope with burgeoning demand. So far, all eggs have been going into the production basket. However, it now seems that a vital link in this ecosystem has been largely ignored: that is, addressing our inadequate power evacuation infrastructure. This is the Achilles´ heel of the Indian power sector.
