If the state governments still wanted to keep electricity subsidies, they should give these to the intended beneficiaries via the direct benefit transfer (DBT) route, rather than burden the distribution companies (discoms) by making them the transfer agents, power minister RK Singh said.
The BSES discoms in the national capital will collaborate with policy research organisation TERI to make efforts to bring down the city’s power demand and raise awareness among around 90,000 schoolchildren, said a spokesperson for the company.

India’s ambitious solar target—100 GW by 2022—envisions at least 40GW of rooftop solar taking off in the country. However, at the current rate of progress, it is doubtful if the country would be able to achieve even half the installed rooftop-solar capacity by then—as of December 2017
Delhi powerdistribution company (discom) BSES on Thursday announced new round-the-clock helpline numbers for its sister discoms in the capital — BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd(BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL).
Power produced from wind and solar projects will become viable, and more attractive for discoms as the government last week waived off inter-state transmission charges for wind and solar projects commissioned till March 2022, in a bid to encourage the use of power generated through these sources.
To achieve the target of having 60 gigawatt (GW) of installed wind energy capacity by 2022, the government has invited tenders for 2,000 MW of wind power projects connected to the inter-state transmission system.
