India attempts transmission planning and coordination as an independent activity to ensure an integrated network across regions, reinforce third-party non-discriminatory access and promote a resilient grid for integration of large-scale RE and flexibility services.  A long-awaited reform  which was enshrined in Electricity Act, 2003

What took India this long to get a central transmission utility? What's been the evolution that gradually led to this point? Hopefully the transition can be a successful one as India looks to other nations who have done this successfully-- do you think that will be the case? 

Thanks for sharing, Prabir!

Reforms in a political economy are always arduous, stakeholder alignment being a major criterion. Secondly, the prospects of scaling up RE capacities and their share in power generation added to the urgency since building a pan-India resilient grid as an outcome of robust centralized planning was an immediate policy call.
