< 1 Minute Read


Hon’ble Union Minister of Electricity and Energy, Government of Myanmar H. E. Mr. U Win Khaing visited TATA Power Delhi Distribution’s Technology Center in New Delhi. He was accompanied by a high-level delegation including senior officials of the Ministry. The visit was organized with an aim to understand the impact of technologies in improving the performance of distribution utility. The delegation learned various technologies implemented at TATA Power-DDL and discussed their implementation processes and operational features.

Mr. Sanjay Banga CEO, TATA Power-DDL addressed the delegates and shared the company’s experience in implementing distribution reforms under a highly successful PPP Model.

Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL) is a joint venture between Tata Power and the Government of NCT of Delhi with the majority stake being held by Tata Power Company (51%). Tata Power-DDL distributes electricity in North & North West parts of Delhi and serves a populace of 7 million. The company started operations on July 1, 2002 post the unbundling of the erstwhile Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB). With a registered consumer base of 1.8 million and a peak load of around 2106 MW, the company's operations span across an area of 510 sq. kms. Tata Power-DDL has been the front-runner in implementing power distribution reforms in the capital city and is acknowledged for its consumer friendly practices. Since privatization, the Aggregate Technical & Commercial (AT&C) losses in Tata Power-DDL areas have shown a record decline. AT&C loss is a measure of overall efficiency of the distribution business which is the difference between units input into the system and the units for which the payment is collected. Today, AT&C losses stand at 7.3 % which is an unprecedented reduction of around 84% from an opening loss level of 53% in July 2002.
