Integrated Power Development Scheme(IPDS)

Introduction

Information technology companies are seen playing a key role in India’s power distribution sector through the Centrally-sponsored Integrated Power Development Scheme(IPDS) {Formerly known as  Restructured Accelerated Power Development & Reforms Programme (R-APDRP)}, which has been launched by the Ministry of Power, Government of India under its 11th five year plan, that promises to cut AT&C losses to 15 per cent across major towns and cities.

Projects under the scheme are taken up in two parts. Part-A includes the projects for establishment of baseline data and IT applications for energy accounting/auditing and IT-based consumer service centres. Part-B includes regular distribution strengthening projects.

PRDC® is involved in successful implementation of GIS integrated network analysis software in Gujarat, West Bengal, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Uttarkhand, Chattisgarh, Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, North Eastern States and Bihar.
