The Union government has taken several steps for effective implementation of Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY). As part of the steps, the
government has set up an inter-Ministerial Monitoring Committee under chairmanship of Secretary (Power) which periodically meets to sanction projects and review progress of implementation.
The Centre has advised states to set up district committees to monitor the progress of rural electrification works. District committees have been set up in all the states to monitor the progress of rural electrification works. States have also been advised to associate elected representatives including the Members of Parliament in the District Committee.
The States have also been requested by MOP to hold monthly meeting under the Chairmanship of Chief Secretary to resolve the bottlenecks in implementation of RGGVY. Ministry of Power as well as Rural Electrification Corporation (REC), the nodal agency for RGGVY, conduct frequent review meetings with all the stakeholders, the State Governments concerned, State Power Utilities and implementing agencies for expeditious implementation of the scheme as per the agreed schedules.
Under the RGGVY, 82 projects were sanctioned in North Eastern States including backward tribal areas of the Bodoland Territorial area covering electrification of 13,595 un/de-electrified villages, intensive electrification of 22,147 partially electrified villages and release of free electricity connections to 16,24,668 BPL households.
The sanctioned projects in North Eastern States cover all the districts including backward tribal areas and also Bodoland Territorial areas.
