UJALA Scheme: Lighting for a sustainable future

On 5 January, 2015 PM Narendra Modi launched Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP), which was later relaunched as Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) on 11 March, 2016.

Energy Efficiency Services (EESL), a JV of four CPSUs of Union Ministry of Power, NTPC, PGCIL, REC and PFC is the implementing agency for the National LED lighting programmes. The Programme is designed to reduce energy consumption in the lighting sector and to promote LED based efficient lighting products.

Under the Street Lighting National Programme (SLNP) government plans to replace 3.5 crore conventional street lights and under Domestic Energy Lighting Programme (DELP) it intends to replace 77 crore LED lights in span of three years.

EESL procures the services of a distribution agency for each location through a competitive bidding. EESL makes a 100 percent upfront investment. The procurement norms for the LED programmes allow only those bidders who have manufacturing facilities in India. 

There are around 200 domestic LED manufacturers in India. This scheme will not only help promote sustainable energy at affordable cost but will also provide huge business opportunities for local manufacturers.
