The power Sector has been receiving adequate priority ever since the process of planned development began in 1950. Over the years (since 1950) the installed capacity of Power Plants (Utilities) has increased to 89090 MW (31.3.98) from meager 1713 MW in 1950, Similarly, the electricity generation increased from about 5.1 billion units to 420 Billion units - 82 fold increase. Remarkable growth and progress have led to extensive use of electricity in all the sectors of economy in the successive five years plans.

The per capita consumption of electricity in the country also increased from 15 kWh in 1950 to about 338 kWh in 1997-98, which is about 23 times.
