Waning hope for UDAY!
Although state discoms have managed to leverage UDAY by paring financial losses from Rs.51,589.51 crore in FY16 to Rs.34,826.87 in FY17, a marginal decrease in AT&C losses seems to be the bone of contention, as what has been envisaged has not been achieved yet, barring bailing-out non-performers.

Some companies are adopting global standards
Only about 10% of motor production in the country is adapted to IE2 & above level. The country is losing a great opportunity of energy conservation. With just shifting to IE2 level as mandatory, at current levels of motor production, in the fMEPSirst year itself India can save about Rs.500 crore.
