Adequate and better quality power supply in rural Madhya Pradesh (MP), where 70% of the population lives, would spur economic growth and development. In order to ensure good quality, 24 hour power supply to rural households, Government of Madhya Pradesh (GoMP) has been undertaking a distribution improvement program (feeder separation program) with an approximate cost of $1100 million. The first phase of this program is already under implementation and the proposed Facility provides financial assistance to the investment program that constitutes the second phase. The investment program will install separate feeders for households and irrigation water pumps, install high voltage distribution systems (HVDS), provide new power connections, install meters, map the assets of the distribution companies and undertake network analysis to ensure better quality power supply to households and financial sustainability of the distribution companies.

|Description||Adequate and better quality power supply in rural Madhya Pradesh (MP), where 70% of the population lives, would spur economic growth and development. In order to ensure good quality, 24 hour power supply to rural households, Government of Madhya Pradesh (GoMP) has been undertaking a distribution improvement program (feeder separation program) with an approximate cost of $1100 million. The first phase of this program is already under implementation and the proposed Facility provides financial assistance to the investment program that constitutes the second phase. The investment program will install separate feeders for households and irrigation water pumps, install high voltage distribution systems (HVDS), provide new power connections, install meters, map the assets of the distribution companies and undertake network analysis to ensure better quality power supply to households and financial sustainability of the distribution companies. Of the total of 50 districts of MP, the investment program covers 32 districts served by three distribution companies: Madhya Pradesh Madhya Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Limited (DISCOM-C); Madhya Pradesh Poorva Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Limited (DISCOM-E); and Madhya Pradesh Paschim Kshetra Vidyut Vitaran Company Limited (DISCOM-W)|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
At present, power supply lines in rural areas supply for both agricultural pumps and other customers. This mixed rural distribution network is faced with several problems, such as over-use of subsidized electricity for agricultural water pumping leaving inadequate power supply to households, and unauthorized use of electricity causing financial losses to the DISCOMs. Ageing and overloaded distribution lines and transformers, cause excessive technical losses and poor quality of supply. To prevent the over-use of electricity by agricultural pumps and to reduce losses, the DISCOMs switch-on the distribution lines serving the rural areas only for limited hours per day. The existing mixed-feeder system does not allow 24 hour supply of power to households and business establishments, which constrains the economic growth and development in rural areas.
To promote efficient use of ground water in agriculture and improve on-farm water conservation practices, the DISCOMs supply 8-10 hours electricity on three phases in rural areas. However, this constraints economic activities and supply of 24 hours quality power to households. As such, separation of power supply lines (feeders) to agriculture and other customers is necessary to ensure 24 hour supply of power to households. Additional measures such as installation of HVDS and metering together with better system management practices are necessary to reduce the technical and commercial losses to the DISCOMs.
|Impact||Continuous and higher quality supply of electricity to rural households in Madhya Pradesh|
