Guidelines for the re-structured accelerated power development and reforms programme (APDRP) during XI plan

The focus area of the programme shall be the actual demonstrable performance in terms of sustained loss reduction, establishment of reliable and automated systems for sustained collection of accurate base line data, and the adoption of information technology in the areas of energy accounting shall be necessary pre-conditions before sanctioning any regular distribution strengthening project. The pre-conditions will enable objective evaluation of the performance of utilities before and after implementation of the programme, and will enforce internal accountability leading to better performance.
