The power conundrum (M. Govinda Rao, Financial Express, April 21, 2015)

power problem

Coordination in calibration relating to infrastructure, ingeneral, and the energy sector, in particular, between theUnion and the states is a major challenge that has to be faced by the government in the coming years. There is an enormous disconnect between the policies relating to generation and distribution and this can lead to the serious consequence of continued power disruptions even when adequate generation capacity is available. The reforms in the power sector, including the Revised Accelerated Power Development and Reform Programme (R-APDRP), have failed to address the issue of coordinating the reforms between the generation and distribution sectors and the issue is unlikely to be resolved even in the Integrated Power Development Scheme initiated in December 2014.
