States with financially sound power distribution companies and undivided electricity departments are lining up to be part of the Centre’s Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojana (Uday) for incentives like concessional coal, power and finance that reduce costs. Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, whose distribution companies do not have accumulated loans, have evinced interest in joining the scheme along with 10 states which do not have separate power distribution firms, a senior government official said.

Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand have signed agreements with the Union power ministry to be part of the scheme, while Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Haryana too will be signing similar memoranda of understanding. A dozen other states have conveyed their in-principle approvals to be part of the scheme.
