China leads in hydro power capacity
Sep 21, 2013

One of the most daunting problems that has arrested India's growth trajectory is the poor state of infrastructure. And high power deficit has been a spoke in the wheel of the India's economic growth. As per an article in the Economic Times, 400 million people in India have no access to power. That's almost one-third of India's population.

Today's chart of the day shows the hydro power generation capacity of major world economies. It is evident that India lags far behind the other BRIC economies. Currently, hydro power capacity comprises 17.5% of the country total power capacity. In fact, China's hydro power capacity is more than India's total power generation capacity! It is high time the government hastens reforms to boost power generation in the country.
