Power Sector Updates


Addition to Power Generation during April-October FY14-15: 9,618 MW (50% achievement)

Total Addition till Oct 14 during 12th plan: 48,626 MW (Achievement of 55% against 12th Plan Target)

Total installed Capacity at the end of Oct 2014: 2,54,649 MW


Addition in ‘CKM’ during 12th Plan Up to October 2014


Addition in MVA/ MW during 12th Plan Up to October 2014

2nd Qtr FY15 showing improvement in Transmission and sub-station, mainly 220 kV & 400 kV. However, addition to Power Generation is slowed down considerably in 2nd Qtr FY15; mostly due to fuel linkage issues (reportedly).

S. No.Name of Division% GrowthObservations

Overall growth in Power, Control & LD Cables supported by Exports


Growth in LT-Self Healing mainly due to Exports;
However decline  in HT Cap due to lack of domestic orders;

3Instrument Transformer4.1

Growth in CTs –Indoor & Outdoor & PTs – Indoor & EMVTs
Mostly from Domestic orders for Medium Voltage


Pin/Post, Disc & Application based Insulators declined;
However, growth in Solid Core & Long Rod mainly for Above 110 KV

5Energy Meter-4.2

Decline in Single phase KWH-DSODP Meter; however growth in MF type Overall decline in Poly phase meters

6Rotating Machine-0.3

Decline in LT Motors (IE2 type) & AC Generators
Recovery in FHP & HT Motors (slightly in Squirrel Cage type)
FHP single phase Motors growth consistant
