Har Ghar Bijli under SAUBHAGYA

     ‘Har Ghar Bijli’ is one of the seven resolves of the Saat Nischay (Seven Resolves) of the State Government, with an aim to provide Electricity connection to each willing household. As all rural BPL households are covered under DDUGJY and there was no scheme for providing service connection to rural APL households, a scheme has been sanctioned by the State Government for releasing new service connection to APL Rural households under Mukhyamantri Vidyut Sambandh Nischay Yojana (MMVSNY). Meanwhile, in October 2017, the Union Ministry of Power had issued a memorandum conveying approval of SAUBHAGYA (Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana) to provide electric connection to each willing household across the country. Under this scheme, the central government has sanctioned Rs. 3000 per household for connection, and Rs. 1500 per household for last mile connectivity.

     The scheme has the provision that the state governments which have already taken up household electrification programme on their own will also be eligible under the scheme from the date it comes into vogue, provided the scheme of the state government is aligned with SAUBHAGYA and follows all guidelines of the scheme. The state government has adopted SAUBHAGYA and the Mukhyamantri Vidyut Sambandh Nishchay Yojana (MMVSNY) has been subsumed under SAUBHAGYA. The scheme has been completed in October, 2018 by providing 32,59,041 electricity connection to all willing households in rural areas, in urban areas, connections are being given on demand.
