What is the scheme all about?

With this scheme, the Prime Minister aims at proper distribution of electricity along with a higher accessibility. In 2015, Mr. Modi announced a scheme to electrify about 18000 villages which didn’t have the connection for the electricity and in the recent updates, the government announced that they are able to electrify 15000 villages till date and they are only 3000 villages without anelectrical connection.
