India jumps 73 spots to 26 rank in WB's power list
India has climbed up to twenty sixth position in World Bank's electricity accessibility ranking in the current year from 99th spot in 2014, Power Minister Piyush Goyal has said.
Our ranking has improved to 26 position from 99. So, it is truly very redeeming feature and satisfying for me that Prime Minister's vision particularly to take electricity to every home, particularly to make electricity access very easy, particularly to make energy affordable is being furthered very rapidly, the minister said here.
He also exuded confidence that by 2019, three years ahead of its original schedule, the government would able to take power to every household. He said that the government was closely working with the states to see that electricity was made available on tap.
