100% houses in 25 states electrified under Saubhagya Yojana

Now, only about 10.48 lakh households are left to be electrified in 4 states – Assam, Rajasthan, Meghalaya and Chhattisgarh.

These states are also taking all concerted efforts to achieve, at the earliest, saturation of household electrification.

Since the launch of Saubhagya, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, 74.4 Lakh willing households have been electrified and state government has declared saturation of all 75 districts.

Government of UP launched a special campaign in all parts of the state to identify any left out un-electrified households and to provide electricity connections to such households. Under the campaign, a special vehicle ‘Saubhagya Rath’, is moving around in villages/towns and any left out households may approach them to avail electricity connection under the scheme. Also, any left out household requiring electricity connection may dial 1912 to avail the facility.

The central government launched ‘Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana’  (Saubhagya) in September 2017 to achieve the goal of universal household electrification in the country by 31 March, 2019.
