10 per cent of the worlds populationsuddenly found they had no electricity A failure of this magnitude has never happened before But while the timing of the incident could not have been predictedthe signs have been visible for many years If more Indians are to enjoy the benefits of a middle-class lifethe country has to ensure that the availability of electricity increases roughly in line with economic growth If India has to compete favourably with its Asian neighboursit would have to increase its per capita electricity consumption Per capita electricity consumption in China is about 35 times that of IndiaMalaysia 633 timesSingapore 14 times and South Korea 166 times Competition between the countries would only increaseand unless India can significantly increase the availability of electricityits competitive position will erode Hydro and coal account for nearly 77 per cent of electricity generation in India Take hydro Only about one-fourth of the countrys hydro potential has been harnessed Lack of visionthe populist tone of much of the countrys politicssocial and environmental activismslow decision-making and weak law-enforcement have ensured that hydro power contributes to only about 20 per cent of electricity generation In AprilSecretary of Power Uma Shankar announced a reduction of the planned hydropower-generating capacity for the next five years from 30 GW to 10 GW because of regulatory delaysproblems with land acquisition and poor planning practices This is in marked contrast to the progress that countries like China have made in hydro development Because of its chaotic planning processIndia simply could not have built the Three Gorges damwhich now accounts for about 10 per cent of Chinas electricity use Coal accounts for more than half of Indias electricity generation The country has the worlds fifth largest reserve of coal but its quality is poor because of very high ash content Coal India has not been increasing production fast enough Compared to Chinas exponentially increasing outputIndian production has remained almost stationary during the past two years Existing mines have strict limits as to how much coal they can extract New mines are difficult to open because of the trouble in obtaining environmental and land clearances Coal priceswhich are fixed by the governmentare below international levels Coal India has $11 billion of unused net cash in its balance sheetbut reinvests only about 20 per cent of its gross cash flow Technology and management practices in mining and transportation are outdated Management is weak because of strong trade unions and the system is rife with corruption Most consumersmeanwhilereceive heavily subsidised electricity Farmers get free power to pump groundwater for irrigationbut some of this free power is illegally diverted to factories Since electricity is freefarmers run their pumps whether or not crops require water As a resultgroundwater levels in many states are declining by over 1 metre every year This means each yearfarmers have to use more electricity to pump water from increasing depthsthus accelerating this vicious circle Government-owned distributors in most states can no longer buy adequate power because they are politically forced to sell power cheap Lack of modernisationpoor operation and maintenance practices and pilferage ensure that 30-40 per cent of electricity generated is lost and do not produce any revenue Meanwhileelectricity-generating companies in the private sector do not get enough coal from Coal Indiaor get the Indian Railways to transport it in time These companies have spent over $7 billion in buying coal mines abroad Since the price at which they can sell power to the distributors is lowimport of coal is not economically attractive The most important challenge facing the power sector is the multiplicity of actorswith different agendas and interests At the Central level there are various ministriespolicymakers and regulatory institutionswho often work at cross purposes There is no one who can knock the heads of the squabbling politicians and bureaucrats together so that an agreed policy is followed which would ensure adequate power for the countrys long-term development Similar complexities lie at the state level In additionthere areon one handpowerful business empires whose tentacles entangle Central and state politics and bureaucracy; andon the othersingle-issue environmental and social activists The result is that electrical infrastructure development has been neglected for decades Even
