0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


So right now the criteria of electrifying a village is 

A village will be deemed to be electrified if the electricity is used in the inhabited locality, within the revenue boundary of the village for any purpose whatsoever.

New definition of village electrification came into effect from the year 2004-05. (Issued by MOP, vide their letter No. 42/1/2001-D(RE) dated 5th February 2004 and its corrigendum vide letter no. 42/1/2001-D(RE) dated 17th February 2004.)

As per the new definition, a village would be declared as electrified, if :

Basic infrastructure such as Distribution Transformer and Distribution lines are provided in the inhabited locality as well as the Dalit Basti hamlet where it exists.
Electricity is provided to public places like Schools, Panchayat Office, Health Centers, Dispensaries,Community centers etc.
The number of households electrified should be at least 10% of the total number of households in the village.
