Government of India has electrified a total of 7,874 villages, as of May 22, 2016, under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojna (DDUGJY)

India: The total electricification in the country reached 7,874 villages as of May 22, 2016 with an addition of 108 villages to the network as of May 22, 2016, under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojna(DDUGJY).  Of the villages that were electrified, 31 villages are located in Jharkhand, 26 each in Odisha and Assam, 8 in Madhya Pradesh, 6 in Arunachal Pradesh, 3 each in Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, 2 each in Rajasthan and Bihar and 1 in Himachal Pradesh. In August 15, 2015, the Central Government launched a pilot project to electrify the remaining 18,452 un-electrified villages within 1000 days i.e. by May 1, 2018. The project has been put in a mission mode and the strategy for electrification consists of squeezing the implementation schedule to 12 months and dividing village electrification process into 12-stage milestones with defined timelines for monitoring. 

TechSci Research depicts that the government has taken up various initiatives including Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojna (DDUGJY) for electrification of rural pockets of India, which has spurred significant investments into the country’s power sector. Notable technological upgrades are underway to reinforce the country’s transmission and distribution network, which would continue to drive the demand for power and distribution transformers in India. Considering the negative impact of these technological developments on the environment, the industry has been undergoing a paradigm shift towards green technologies.  

According to a released report of TechSci Research, “India Power & Distribution Transformers Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020”, the power and distribution transformers market in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 10% till 2020. Power transformers contribute to a major portion in the overall market revenues due to their higher price points. Under the 12th five-year plan (2012-2017), Indian government allocated USD200 billion for strengthening the country’s power generation, transmission and distribution sector.
