[ A KEY TO SUSTAINABLE RURAL DEVELOPMENT ]
Rural Electrification has been & would remain a vital program of rural areas to ensure their rapid economic development. Despite lots of efforts made by Govt. of India more than 400 million Indians still do not have access to electricity as the electrification rate is 93.1% in Urban Areas & only 52.5% in Rural Areas. Energy Security & Energy Access are the main catalyst for poverty reduction & improving living conditions in rural areas and thus promoting National & International growth. More than 50% of India’s populations are below the age of 25 years and most of them live in rural areas with hardly any employment potential, causing large scale migration to cities, leading to serious overcrowding in cities.
