Frequently Asked Questions
In 2015, the government had launched the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY) to electrify 18,000 villages across India. Electrification of villages only requires providing power to 10% of households and in public areas such as health centres, schools, panchayat office, dispensaries, and community centres. The remaining 90% of residents were not covered under this project. But the ‘Saubhagya’ project intends to rectify that. It aims to provide power to all households without power.

Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana - Saubhagya is to provide energy access to all by last mile connectivity and electricity connections to all remaining un-electrified households in rural as well as urban areas to achieve universal household electrification in the country.

The electricity connection to households include release of electricity connections by drawing a service cable from the nearest pole to the household premise, installation of energy meter, wiring for a single light point with LED bulb and a mobile charging point. In case the electricity pole is not available nearby from household for drawing service cable, the erection of additional pole along with conductor and associated accessories shall also be covered under the scheme.
