As discom losses continue downward spiral, power secretary bats for better governance

Revenue deficit of state power distribution companies has risen to the worst in nearly a decade, while other financial indicators are also bleak. The pandemic will only lead to a further loss.
Power secretary Sanjiv Sahai said discoms need to be governed properly. “In many cases, unbundling of discoms did not achieve what it was meant to. Discoms are still not at arm’s length from their governments. Many states assume electricity is largesse to be distributed, but the political price of power has to be seen separately from its economic price. We are not asking states to stop giving free power. But someone has to pay for it,” he said.
