Government now pushes to achieve the target of 100% of household electrification in the defined timelines. Government has announced Rs. 100 crs award for states that would complete the household electrification early under the Saubhagya scheme. Apart from discoms, the employees would also collectively get Rs 50 lakh award for completing the task of electrifying household under the Rs 16,320 crore Saubhagya scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year in September. </span></p>
