Mission Directorate setup under PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli

A Mission Directorate has been formally established by the Indian government, under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, to supervise the execution of the PM Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana. This is a massive project that intends to install rooftop solar plants in ten million households. On May 29, 2024, a recent office memo was released, confirming this development.
With administrative permission granted on February 29, 2024, the PM Surya Ghar: Muft Bijli Yojana entails a substantial financial investment of Rs. 750 billion. This project, which is expected to start operations in March 2024, is a component of the government's larger plan to increase the use of renewable energy across the country.
Under the Ministry's Rooftop Solar Division, the newly formed Mission Directorate will be led by a Mission Director. The daily operations and strategic planning of the programme will fall within the purview of the Director. This entails publishing comprehensive instructions, liaising with regional and federal organisations in charge of implementing programmes, and supervising the financial administration and allocation of resources required for the plan.
In order to enable seamless and successful implementation, the Directorate is also responsible for making sure that different stakeholders, such as state governments and private entities, effectively coordinate. To ensure that the programme is in line with the goals, regular monitoring and assessment of its performance are also required.
The establishment of the Mission Directorate is seen as a critical step in realising India?s renewable energy goals. It underscores the government's commitment to increasing the nation's energy security and reducing dependency on non-renewable sources through sustainable practices.
