Electricity growth in India
Jan 11, 2013

The electricity sector is the growth engine of an economy. In India, providing access to electricity is the function of the ruling government. As such, household access to electricity is a key indicator of the quality of governance. Today's chart of the day shows states with the highest and lowest growth in households with access to electricity over the last decade (2011 versus 2001). States such as Uttarakhand, Tripura and Andhra Pradesh (AP) displayed significant improvement in access to electricity. On the other hand, Madhya Pradesh (MP) is the only state that showed decline in the number of households with access to electricity during the period. The growth in states such as Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh (HP) and Goa was slow as more than 90% households had access to electricity even a decade ago.
