Energy is an essential requirement for economic as well as overall development of the State. Availability of continuous quality power is a must for meeting the basic requirement  of people in general and industrial development in particular.

                        The main objective is to accelerate the pace of development of the State and bring it at least at par with other developed States. This will sub-serve the overall goals of the State in economic development and thereby reduce the level of poverty, particularly prevailing in rural areas.
