Dispur ready for second phase of power reforms

Dispur is all set to undertake the second phase of power sector reforms in the form of major initiatives to boost generation and greater efforts for privatisation. Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Wednesday, power minister Pradyut Bordoloi said that the time has come to undertake the second phase of the reforms where focus would on increasing
generation and improving transmission and distribution. Assam has a peak demand of 720 MW-780 MW. Of this only 130 MW-150 MW of power is being generated from
its own power stations, while another around 400 MW is being imported from central sector generating stations in the North East and remaining from other sources like private
producers and power trading agencies. There is a shortfall of about 100-150 MW during peak demand.
