In line with its transparent style of functioning, the ministry of power’s GARV App has made it possible for anyone to check the state by state status of the village electrification process in India. Available data shows that out of a total of 18452 villages, as on February 6, 2017, more than 12,000 villages have been electrified and 5,665 remains to be electrified.

Village electrification is much ahead of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s target of electrification of all villages in 1000 days on 15th August 2015 i.e till 1st May 2018. Union Minister Piyush Goyal said recently that he is confident of accomplishing this target much before the stipulated time except few villages in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh that are Maoist

According to official figures, nearly one third of villages are left (5665) of the total 18452 villages. Time left is nearly 460 days. So 2/3rd of the villages remains to be electrified in nearly 460 days.

The three things being done to speed up rural electrification are:
a. Village electrification broken down to 12 milestones.
b. Nearly 400 Gram Vidyut Abhiyantas appointed to facilitate States.
c. Live updation of status through GARV App.

The remaining villages (3968- 70%) are now mainly in 4 states including Arunachal Pradesh (1229); Assam (972); Jharkhand (892) and Odisha (875)). The remaining villages are mostly in naxal areas, forest areas, riverine areas, flood affected area & hilly/remote areas. Many of these villages do not have access through road and in many cases electrification would be the first major programme to be implemented.
