India has emerged as a the fastest growing major economy in the world as per the central Statistics Organisation (CSO) and international Monetary Fund (IMF) and it is expected to be one of the top three economic power of the world over the next 10-15 years. India GDP is estimated to have increased 6.6 per cent in 2017-18 and expected 7.3 per cent in 2018-19to but India, one among the leading economies of the world is predominantly rural, Almost 70% its population is in rural area, as per the census 2011 near about 120 cr population is living in rural area & their economic & social development is the only key indicator of growth & development of Indian economy to achieve this fully it is important that rural population of India have to access modern facilities mainly adequate supply of electricity.
Electrification is not only the keydriver for the economic & social development of the modern Indian economy but it is the vital essentialservice such as health care, safe drinking water, education, etc for rural Indian population. No doubt rural electrification is the backbone of development of Indian economy, but it is a booster dose for rural development.
It not only support comfortable & better standard of household living & but stimulate revenue generation activities. It is in observation that strong correlation exists between consumption of electricity & improvements in the human developments index.
Keeping it as a central objective government of India has introduced several scheme at state level& central level to ignite economic & fulfil the need of rural Indian residents. But the performance result of different scheme introduced by government is not so result oriented.
No doubt keeping it in the mind government continuously work towards 100% rural electrification that can provide speedy growth of rural economy through supporting in Agriculture & agro Industries & other livelihood activity.
