SAUBHAGYA ELECTRIFICATION SCHEME - A total 2.86 crore households have been electrified – Union Power & NRE Minister Shri R. K. Singh

Posted On: 16 MAR 2023 7:10PM by PIB Delhi

The Government of India launched Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana – SAUBHAGYA in October, 2017 with the objective of achieving universal household electrification, by providing electricity connections to all un-electrified households in rural areas and all poor households in urban areas in the country. Salient features of the scheme were:

 

(i)  Providing last mile connectivity and electricity connections to all un-electrified households in rural areas.

(ii) Providing Solar Photo Voltaic (SPV) based standalone systems for un-electrified households located in remote and inaccessible villages / habitations where grid extension is not feasible or cost effective.

(iii) Providing last mile connectivity and electricity connections to all remaining economically poor un-electrified households in urban areas. Non-poor urban households are excluded from this scheme.

 

Under the aegis of SAUBHAGYA, as on 31.03.2019, all households were reported electrified by the States, except 18,734 households in Left Wing Extremists (LWE) affected areas of Chhattisgarh. Subsequently, seven States namely Assam, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Manipur, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh had reported that around 19.09 lakh un-electrified households, identified before 31.03.2019, which were unwilling earlier but later expressed willingness to get electricity connection. This was also sanctioned. All these seven States had reported 100% household electrification as on 31.03.2021. A total of 2.817 crore households were electrified since the launch of SAUBHAGYA, up to 31.03.2021. Thereafter some States reported 11.84 lakh households remained to be electrified, against which States reported that 4.43 lakh households have been electrified. Accordingly, till date, a total 2.86 crore households have been electrified. State-wise details are at Annexure-I. The schemes stands closed on 31st March, 2022.

Under the scheme, projects worth Rs.14,082 crore were sanctioned and with the closure cost of Rs.9246 Crore, against which central grant of Rs.6305 crore was released upto31st March, 2022.

The district-wise details of number of beneficiaries who have been provided with electrical access under the scheme in the Jharkhand, since 2017 are at Annexure-II.

There was no upfront allocation of funds for any State/District under SAUBHAGYA scheme. Funds were released for sanctioned projects in installments based on the reported utilization of the funds released in the previous installments and fulfillment of stipulated conditions.  The details of funds sanctioned, allocated and utilized under the scheme in Jharkhand are as under:
