Kerala, Karnataka to soon join UDAY scheme: Goyal
Kerala and Karnataka have shown their willingness to come on board for UDAY scheme meant for reviving stressed discoms and will be soon joining it, Union Power minister Piyush Goyal said today.

"Kerala has taken two weeks time and they have confirmed that they are joining. Karnataka has asked for a few clarifications and will shortly be joining," Goyal told reporters on the sidelines of the Make in India Week here.

He said so far 15 states have joined the scheme.

UDAY aims at reviving ailing state electricity boards and operational efficiencies of power distribution companies.

It envisages on reducing interest burden, cost of power and aggregate technical and commercial losses (AT&C losses).

The minister further said Tamil Nadu has peculiar problem because they have discom, generation and transmission under one company and the government is working with the Centre to sort the issue.

"So, there are certain intricacies that need to be navigated, which we are doing with them," he added.

Goyal further said the government is also creating a framework to help 12 states and union territories, that don't have discoms but have utilities, to come on board.
