Chandigarh | Power Privatization is the upcoming project that is going to take shape in the UT under the administration of VP Singh Badnore to make Chandigarh a Green Capital of India. Badnore, also being the Governor of Punjab is highly influenced by the vision of Narendra Modi to make India much more efficient for its upcoming generations in the sectors of electricity, connectivity and its distribution.
So far the distribution of the electricity was mostly organized by the government sectors in India, but Badnore is aiming towards bringing in the private companies into the scene by issuing multiple licences. As he wants that the masses should enjoy a complete freedom to switch between the service providers if one is not serving up to the standards and the requirements.
Power Privatization: The Inspiration
Badnore is taking into account the electricity distribution systems through what the European nations and cities like London provide their citizens undisrupted services. He said that people in London have a number of service providers to choose from if they are unhappy from anyone’s service. And this is what he’s looking to provide to the people of Chandigarh to make it one of the first cities to have multiple private discoms as the electricity distributors.
Badnore wants to issue the licenses to the private discoms under a reliable licensing syatem that have been trying to gain it for quite a long time. He said London has 10 service providers and initially Chandigarh can do about 3 to 6.
