NEW DELHI: Power Minister R K Singh today said India will achieve the target of power for all by December next year, while all villages will be electrified by the end of this year, much ahead of the schedule.
Government had set the deadline for electrifying all villages by May 1, 2018. Similarly, it was aiming to provide 24X7 power to all by March, 2019.
“Prime Minister has said December 2018 is the target. We will do it. This is a tight target but we will do. Every household will get electricity by December 2018,” Singh said at the launch of ‘Saubhagya’ scheme for providing power to all households.
