Abstract

The Electricity Bill 2001 claims that it has taken account of the current realities of the power sector in India. Unfortunately, there is little reflection of this in the bill. In fact, in its present form, it will be another futile legislative exercise to show progress where there is none and, like many other laws in the country, is likely to largely remain as a showpiece on paper. In the circumstances, the government will do well to withdraw the bill for further examination and consultations.
