Abstract

In the era of reforms, power sector has also created space for itself by launching Ujwal Discoms Assurance Yojana (UDAY) with a motive to bring and upgrade efficiency in power sector. The Discoms had bearded an amount of Rs. 2374 Crore as burden of interest on outstanding debt. In this paper, an attempt has been made to assess the performance of Haryana Discoms on operational & financial parameters. The researcher draws a conclusion on the operational parameters that DT meter (Rural), smart metering above 500 KWH and smart metering between 200 to 500 KWH parameters have an insignificant growth. On the other hand, financial parameters of UDAY scheme show that UHBVNL Discom has higher Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses and the Average Cost of Supply (ACS) & Average Revenue Realization (ARR) gap of DHBVNL reports to be insignificant which poses a major challenge for Haryana.
