The Stress Marks!
India's power sector is in a catch-22 situation. A sound analysis of the power sector affirms that the sector is in the ICU where 78,000 MW of projects are under stress; and approximately Rs 1,200 billion worth unviable projects and PPAs are signed for a mere 7,000 MW.

Loss-making discoms to be denied loans
We have already liberalised the Electricity Act and it provides for franchisees. However, the charging station is not selling electricity, but giving you a service. It is actually buying the electricity from a discom.
Elecrama 2018 was not merely an exhibition. It reflected the industry sentiment. Looking at the numbers- Rs 65 billion of business queries generated, footfall of around 298,000 and 1,200 exhibitors-it seems all is well with the power sector.

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.
