Power distribution in rural areas needs to be strengthened to pace up with rise in generation and transmission capacities. The flagship schemes of Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY) is under implementation in rural areas to strengthen the distribution system, availability of power supply and improve reach, thereby boosting the farm sector output and economic activity in rural areas. The main objectives of DDUGJY scheme are to provide electricity to all rural households, reduction of AT&C losses, and to achieve 24X7 power supply for non-agricultural consumers and adequate power supply for agricultural consumers.
SPML Infra has contributed towards bringing electricity to rural and remote areas. It has executed a number of rural electrification projects to provide electricity to millions of households in several states of India. In rural areas, electricity is used not only for lighting and household purposes, but it also allows for mechanization of many farming operations such as threshing, pumping water and hoisting grain for storage. In areas facing labour shortages, it allows for greater productivity at reduced cost.
