The efficiency evaluation is also necessary for generating competition in the sector and for sector regulation and scientific tariff setting. Hence, it is vital for the success of any reforms program to review the performance of existing utilities. Based on the productivity and efficiency analysis, benchmarks can be set, and targets for improvement may be identified.

The Report is coming at a crucial time when the Indian government has initiated measures that promise to revamp the sector. The work presented in the Report is a pioneer study on evaluation of performances in the Indian power sector, as so far no known study has attempted READ MORE >
