The Indian Government has said that all states barring Uttar Pradesh have inked agreements with the Centre to achieve the milestone of providing '24x7 Power For All (PFA)'.
Commenting on the issue, a Power Ministry Official told the media, "With the signing of the '24x7 Power For All (PFA)' roadmap document with the state (Tamil Nadu yesterday), the roadmap for all the 28 states, except one, and all the 7 Union Territories in the country have now been finalised and is under implementation."
"Uttar Pradesh has not inked 24x7 PFA roadmap document with Power Ministry," he added.
The ministry said it is the most significant milestone in this initiative founded on the principles of cooperative federalism.
As per reports, this milestone was achieved yesterday when the Power Ministry also signed the MoU for Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY) with Tamil Nadu here. UDAY scheme is meant for revival of debt stressed discoms.
