PM to chair conference of Chief Ministers on power sector

Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh will inaugurate a conference of Chief Ministers of States and Union Territories on power related issues here today.

New Delhi, May 28 : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh will inaugurate a conference of Chief Ministers of States and Union Territories on power related issues here today.

The conference will have the several issues as its agenda. They are programme for rapid expansion of generation in the next five years, reduction of losses (T and D/ATC) through a crash programme, improving functioning of electricity markets by ensuring greater competitiveness, including through open access, rural electrification and energy conservation and demand side management. The conference is a follow up of the recently concluded States Chief Secretaries and Power Secretaries conference last month.

In that conference, there was a general consensus on the issues relating to reduction of losses, control of power theft, accelerated expansion of generation capacity in the next five years, need for facilitation and encouragement by states in 'open access' in transmission and distribution.

It may be recalled that in the Chief Secretaries' Conference the progress of rural electrification under the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana was also reviewed and the States were asked to formulate their plans for rural electrification and share them with the Ministry of Power at the Centre.
