Rural Transformation and Sustained Growth of Agriculture

Rural India suffers from poor infrastructure and inadequate amenities. Low agricultural growth perpetuates food and nutritional insecurities, which also reduces rural incomes. How can we encourage and support our villages in improving their living and livelihood conditions in innovative ways?

What are the ways in which the rural electrification scheme can be made more effective?

• Small compact power plants should be encouraged.

It is to be appreciated that great strides had been made in increasing the reach of electrification in particularly in rural areas. But on the other hand we are unable to cope with increasing demand. India's existing power production capacity needs to be increased. We also have another problem of obliging to the mitigating climate change protocols, not to mention the depleting energy producing resources like coal, neither can we go for building another dam for electricity production.
I think that all this problems can be solved by promoting 'Alternative' sources of Energy like Solar, Wind and Bio-energy. This 'Alternative Energy' methods can help us address all the problems in one-shot.
1.As it has been proven, it is climate-friendly sources of energy (So we solved one problem)
2.Being renewable sources of energy, there is no need to fear of resource depletion or raising cost of resources like coal or oil.
3.Finally, traditional centralized Energy production requires heavy infrastructure costs like power grids, transformers and the massive human infrastructure resource in running the entire 'Electricity Board' machinery. This will be more in remote, electrically-unconnected villages. So, I think the promoting 'Alternative Energy', not only serves as 'Green Energy' source and as 'Renewable Energy' Source, but will also work out cheap in the long run.
I think that this is the missing connection, that GoI needs to make in Rural Electrification Scheme and use 'Solar-Wind-BioEnergy' as next best alternative energy production source.

With reference of Rural Electrification ,as this is very important at first in india most of villages are far from proper promising electric facility and for the same we have to think very soon if we want to see complete sustainable development with equally necessary areas for that we can adopt the following way for better rural electrification sheme with effective implementation in practicle manner-
-At first Govt.should be complementary Renewable energy equipment towards use of natural heat into electricity
-All Solar technique based euipment should be provide to each home with proper training and utilization .
-by utilization of water resources on specific places with hybrid technologies and collection and storage components

Providing technical and financial assistance to the district level authorities, for local power generation.
solar energy although cannot contribute much to the national grid, it is definitely useful for the local needs, specially the remote villages, which i think already comes under the first phase of the National solar power mission.
So, District planning committees can come up with integrated plan or plans for different blocks or in consultation with the gram sabhas and block samitis , according to their needs and preferences so that the dependence on the conventional grid system reduces.

Even if some parts are being connected to the main grid and wherever conventional hydroelectric power can serve the purpose, the new projects can be linked to a Wage-Employment scheme for the local people around the area.

Apart from new electricity lines, we need to simultaneously look at the existing electric lines. The condition is miserable in most of the villages. Poor wiring and connection results in faults & blackouts every now and then.
Maybe a new team specifically dedicated to the improvement of electricity transmission can be made in the Electricity deparment.
We also need to put a check on the theft of electricity in rural areas. Strict punishments are aleady there but not implemented. Electricity bills in rural areas are overdue from many years. I know of a place where people didn't receive electricity bill for 10 years and now they have got a bill of Rs. 30,000 to pay. This is sheer inefficiency.
Transformers , and other equipments need to be upgraded. Then only we will be able to gain citizen support and reach every village . Citizens should be made aware of the need to save energy.

We must keep on doing the good work done in recent past, more funds to be encouraged through REC and other power financing institutions to target areas where education and other developmental works are on a higher pace. Remote areas need to be taken care of.
