Following LPG success, louder calls for DBT to electricity consumers

The Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) mechanism in the LPG subsidized connection is now considered as a great achievement of the Narendra Modi government. Encouraged by this enormous success, there is a strong view up-and-coming in the power corridors to use the same mechanism for the domestic electricity market. According to the industry insider, as well as, government sources; this will help to maintain great transparency into the system of power distribution and revenue collection. “It’s time to do away with the cross-subsidies that exist in the system today…make people pay for power but equitably,” said by Arvind Subramanian, Chief Economic Adviser to the Ministry of Finance of Government of India.
