Piyush Goyal, Minister of state for Power, Coal & New and Renewable Energy (Independent Charge) stated this in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha recently.

New Delhi: The Central Government has been trying hard along with the State Governments in providing 24X7 electricity supply to all consumers by establishing power plants and transmission systems in Central Sector through Central Power Sector Undertakings (CPSUs).

This would not only help the domestic users but will also help the industries to scale up their production. States like Haryana, UP, Punjab have been facing stiff problems of power shortage from a long decade.

The Minister further stated that the Government of India has now taken initiative to prepare Action Plans for all the States / UTs for providing 24X7 Power For All in partnership with the States/UTs.

To begin with, State specific documents for the State of Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan have been prepared and action for preparation of State specific documents in respect of other States/UTs has been initiated, the Minister added.
