ADB is helping upgrade and expand the transmission and distribution of electricity in India’s Madhya Pradesh to meet growing demand for energy in the state. The project will fund about 1,800 circuit kilometers of transmission lines and more than 3,100 circuit kilometers of distribution lines, and construct or upgrade substations. It will also build institutional capacity.

Madhya Pradesh power transmission and distribution system served a peak demand of 8,505 megawatt (MW) and delivered 41,392 gigawatt hours (GWh) in 2012. However, the estimated peak demand was 9,151 MW, resulting in an unmet energy demand of 8,393 GWh (20% of the requirement). There are 8.21 million electricity customers in the state, of which 6.1 million were household customers with a legal power connection, representing about 60% of all households. New power connections are provided to households under a number of programs, and consumption per customer is also expected to increase in the face of robust economic growth in the state. Therefore, the demand for electricity is expected to increase and meeting this growing demand requires upgrading and expansion of the transmission and distribution network in the state.
Quality of power supply and reliability of service in MP used to be substantially below the standards expected of a modern public electricity network. The Asian Development Bank (ADB), other development partners, and the government undertook a series of investments for expansion, upgrading and reconfiguration of the transmission and distribution networks since 2001. The ADB alone has approved about $1.37 billion worth of investment projects since 2001, mainly for transmission and distribution improvements. The government's own programs includes: (i) Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) program for rural electrification; (ii) the Restructured Accelerated Power Development Reforms Program (R-APDRP), to improve electricity distribution infrastructure in urban areas; and (iii) Feeder Separation Program to limit agricultural supply to 8 hours and to provide rural households with 24-hour power supply. While the RGGVY and R-APDRP programs are nearing their completion, the feeder separation program is half way through its implementation.
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The proposed project undertakes transmission and distribution improvements, critical for meeting the growing demand for power in Madhya Pradesh (MP) in India. As a follow up to the previous investments in MP, the project will undertake selected transmission system improvement, distribution system improvement and capacity building. The main objectives of the project are to provide adequate transmission and distribution capacity to supply growing power demand; and reduce the system losses to ensure financial sustainability of the MP power distribution companies.|
