Magazine Description

In this issue

Power sector has achieved a great success in the last eight years. The installed power generation capacity now stands at 15,351 MW. But the government often faces embarrassing situation despite huge surplus generation capacity also due to constraints in transmission and distribution systems. Over the last three years, the government has made extensive plans and arranged investment for upgrading power transmission grid and distribution networks to meet the demand. Some works have already been done for strengthening and upgrading the transmission grid and distribution networks, and many other projects are in progress. Customer services have improved to a great extent after power distribution companies converted into public limited companies. But still lot of irregularities, corruption and inefficiency are there. Un-interrupted power supply cannot be achieved without addressing these problems with strong measures. For improving quality, achieving efficiency and ensuring uninterrupted, quality power supply at affordable cost, letting out power distribution and retail services to private sector must be seriously considered. The present commendable success in power generation could be maintained if private sector is engaged in this sector under appropriate policies.
