There are many private players who are producing current and supplying to the state electricity department. As far as I know the electric cables and all infrastructure is created by state government and supply will also be made by state government only. THe government will pay to the manufacturer as per the units he has generated. SO producers are many but supplier is only one. This is true to all state governments in India. As far as my knowledge goes there are no private player who is supplying directly current from their plant to public directly. In fact it is very costly to have a separate distribution system and directly supply to public. If I am wrong and if anybody knows the private player supplying directly can name the company in this thread as their response.
I was just asking whether Government can introduce competition just like other services we get.
In Odisha, you find 3 different distribution companies for different areas namely NESCO, WESCO and SOUTHCO. All the three companies are subsidiaries of Reliance Infrastructure Limited (formerly Reliance Energy).
