Jharkhand energy policy, 2011: draft
Main objective of the Energy policy is to accelerate the pace of development of the State and bring it at least at par with other developed States. This will subserve the overall goals of the State in economic development and thereby reduce the level of poverty, particularly prevailing in rural areas and among the people belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes. Jharkhand State is fortunate that it has immense possibilities of coal based thermal power generation. Looking at abundant availability of coal in the state, Jharkhand would be developed as a 'Power Hub' of the Nation from where power would be exported to other needy States. Jharkhand Energy Policy, 2011 is structured with consumers as the focal point & aims at fulfillment of the overall need for universal access and for providing reliable, quality & affordable power.
