In a historic move, the prime minister will introduce the ministry of power’s flagship Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme, which aims to increase the DISCOMs and power departments’ operational effectiveness and financial viability. The scheme, which would cost more than Rs. 3 lakh crore over five years from FY 2021–22 to FY 2025–26, aims to give DISCOMs financial support for modernizing and improving their distribution infrastructure with an emphasis on enhancing the dependability and quality of supply to end users.
