Note- The figures are based on the data available on DDUGJY website (Except Union Territories). As per Power For All action plan document of Andaman and Nicobar Island, 100% village electrification has been achieved. Disclaimer- The data included in monthly progress reports of village electrification published by CEA is provisional in nature as indicated in all the reports. The data in the report prior to October,2015 was updated every month based on the information received from States/distribution utilities as and when reported but the data for all the states for a particular month was generally not made available simultaneously to reflect the countrywide picture for a particular month. Number of total villages and number of electrified villages have also been adjusted for changes observed from Census 2011 data. As such, each monthly report of village electrification of CEA is independent of the earlier published reports and any derived data based on the earlier reports of CEA may not show a correct picture for that period.
