Power Sector is Evolving to Meet Challenges

Mr Piyush Goyal
Minister of Railways and Coal, Government of India

I think a lot of good things have happened in the power sector, but their is scope for much more. And as the world is facing newer and newer challenges particularly around sustainability, about environmental concerns I am happy that the power sector is also evolving is also coming up to meet these challenges. The sector so far has had certain I would say intrinsic problems, which we are trying to address. We are looking at serving a billion people with quality power uninterrupted power at affordable prices. The electric equipment suppliers have a important role to play in that we are looking at expanding the scale of engagement. So I need 250 million smart meters for example I need better quality transformers to serve Rural India, to serve the poor of India. Round-the-clock, and I’m sure the sector will come up to the expectations of the people of India. and ELECRAMA will be a platform where we can showcase India strengths and ensure that power for all 24 by 7 does not remain a dream, but turns into a reality quickly!
