Experience all over the world has shown that enhanced accessibility to electricity enhances lifestyles leading to higher demand of electricity. The per-capita consumption of the consumers in Delhi is more than 1561 units per annum as against the national average of 1010 units (FY 2014-15). Delhi, being an urban place with high load density, has seen the electricity consumption increasing from 20040.22 MUs in 2003-04 to 32360.840 MUs in 2017-18. The increase in percentage terms is 61.48% for Delhi for the past sixteen years. Power sector has become a serious challenge for the Government as it is the primary driver for all round development of the territory. On July 1, 2002, Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB) was unbundled into six successor companies i.e. Delhi Power Company Limited (DPCL)-Holding Company, Delhi Transco Limited (DTL) –Transmission Company, Indraprastha Power Generation Company Limited (IPGCL) –GENCO, and three Private Distribution Companies i.e. BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) (earlier NDPL). The Government of NCT of Delhi handed over the management of the business of electricity distribution to three private companies BRPL, BYPL and TPDDL with 51% equity being handed over to the private sector and 49% equity being retained by GNCTD through DPCL.
