The Government of India has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Government of Maharashtra and Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co Ltd (MSEDCL) under the Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY) at the two-day State Power Ministers Conference in Vadodara.
Under UDAY, 16 states/UTs have already signed the MoU till date, Maharashtra being the seventeenth. The combined discom debt, including Central PSU dues, which would be restructured in respect of these states, is around Rs 2.57 lakh crore, which is around 68 per cent of the total outstanding discom debt as on 30th September, 2015.
An overall net benefit of approximately Rs 9725 crore would accrue to Maharashtra by the state opting to participate in UDAY, by way of cheaper funds, reduction in AT&C losses, interventions in energy efficiency, coal reforms etc., during the period of turnaround.
