India to privatise discoms in all Union Territories, explore PPP across states

India will privatize electricity distribution companies (discoms) in all its eight union territories and explore public-private partnerships for power distribution in some states, Union power minister said. The Centre has informed the Union territories about the decision. Unlike discoms in states governed by the respective state governments, those in Union territories are directly administered by the central government.  Ministry of Power will put in place a distribution system which is based on totally open, transparent, competitive, commercial principles.
