There are several stories across country showing how a hamlet or village got electricity or water for the first time after 75 years of independence. Some of these stories are shared as under:

  1. Tribal hamlet in Mysuru gets power connection 75 years after independence:

A tribal hamlet on the fringes of Hediyala range of Bandipur Tiger Reserve, without electricity for generations, recently got connected to the power grid of Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC).

Electricity meter being installed at Kotanahalli Colonly hamlet which was without power for decades.

Given the geographical location abutting the forest periphery these 20 families were cut off from the mainstream and lived in darkness all these decades.

What is intriguing is that villages close to the hamlet had power connection but a portion of the tribal hamlet of the Jenu Kuruba community at Kothnahalli Colony was left out and it took 75 years after Independence to ensure power connection.  The local Gram Panchayat member Muzib, said these 20 families have been living in sheds without power for generations. Houses were constructed for them about 15 to 20 years ago but for some reason, power supply was not provided and despite many requests power lines were not drawn to fix the issue.

2.       MSEDCL supplies electricity to 2,395 tribal homes in Maharashtra in 12 days

The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) has achieved a significant milestone by supplying electricity to vulnerable tribal communities in remote areas of the state within just 12 days. Under PM-JANMAN mission, the utility provided electricity to 2,395 homes of tribal families in various districts. Deputy Chief Minister and Energy Minister Devendra Fadnavis prioritized the scheme's implementation, which began on November 15, 2023.

Among the first to be provided with power supply was the house of Ashok Dagdu Hilam of village Thangaon in Sinnar taluka of Nashik district. He said that electricity was supplied at home two days ago although he had not applied for it. The government provided the connection and subsequently 15 more families residing in his locality got electricity supply. 

These motivating stories are realization of vision of the PM who had in his Independence speech from Red Fort in August 2021, given a clarion call to saturate every village and household with the schemes of Government. PM JANMAN is designed for 75 PVTG communities who have been left out by the schemes of various Ministries/Departments and therefore need to be supported through this Mission.  Mission is also a unique example of cooperative federalism and whole of Government approach for welfare of the people- outreach, convergence and saturation-sabka saath- sabka vikas- sabka vishwas-sabka prayas, envisioned by the PM, where in 9 Ministries are working in convergence for the welfare of 75 most vulnerable groups in 19 states and 1 UT.  These communities could not get benefits of most of the schemes of Government of India even after 75 years of independence due to remoteness of their locations, lack of awareness, lack of physical and digital connectivity and schematic norms.
