222 GwHOh wow!!! from ~85 gw peak deficit to 4.8 gw deficit.. that's quite an achievement.
India had a massive power deficit of -16.6% in 2007-08. Even in 2011-12, it was -10.6 %. Through the multi pronged, comprehensive and aggressive interventions of the government, this deficit is near about wiped out, consistently over the last 3 years: -.4% In 2020-21, -.7% in 2019-20 and -.8% in 2018-19. The current year, up till October, it has been -1.2%; the marginal spike being attributable to the annual post monsoon pressure on power output. This is also likely to normalize by the end of the year.
This transformation from an acutely power deficit country, to a situation of demand being met, except for an extremely marginal shortfall of less than 1%, has been made possible by the following schemes brought in by the current Government to address the unhappy situation.
The Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDUGJY), was brought in on 25th July, 2015 for infrastructure push in the rural sector – setting up of transmission and sub transmission systems. The Integrated Power Development Scheme ( IPDS ),was brought in on 20th November, 2014 for to fill in power infrastructure gaps in urban areas. The Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana (Saubhagya) scheme launched on 25th September, 2017, had the vision to take electricity to every household (willing), and has been able to supply electricity connections to 2.8 to crore households which were hither to in darkness.
The augmentation to the installed power capacity in the country, consequent to these efforts, has been 155377 MEGAWATT in last approximately 7 years.
Placed below, for reference, is the power supply position of the country since 2007-08.

Whats the status of Vadhvan port and Tajpur port?
TMC seems to in a mood to delay it. Just like Vadhvan and the mega refinery is delayed.
"We remain committed to Tajpur deep-sea port and awaiting the statutory requirements from the state, associated with the project," the official said when contacted but declined to be identified.economictimes.indiatimes.com
Applying cosmetic changes to environment impact assessment studies to dilute concerns raised by 'activists' and safeguarding against potential involvement of milards (on the lines of great Nicobar port project?) it seems.“JNPA will have to conduct a revised environment impact assessment and management plan. Corals and mangroves in the area will have to be shown under CRZ-IA classification, which was not done in the earlier EIA report. They will have to carry out proper 3-D modelling studies, a detailed traffic study, a cumulative EIA and fresh public hearings in Dahanu and Daman. One hopes that these studies will be done in earnest,” said Debi Goenka, executive trustee, Conservation Action Trust and an invitee of the Dahanu Taluka Environment Protection Authority (DTEPA).
The DTEPA had previously criticised various preliminary reports related to the project. In February, Shyam Asolekar (professor of environmental science at IIT-B) and a former member of the DTEPA, panned the poor-quality data in the existing EIA report, calling it “frankly superficial.”
Asolekar also referred to a report by the National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM), which concluded that “the environmental and ecological impacts of the proposed offshore port facility is rather minimal”, for being based purely on secondary data. “This is a curious report, prepared in two months, has some 20 objectives and uses secondary data. More in depth discussion is required alone on this report,” he had said.
Shortly after his comments, Asolekar, along with Vidyadhar Deshpande (former town planner, Maharashtra) and Kulbushan Jain (professor emeritus, CEPT University, Ahmedabad)—all authority members for over two decades—were removed from the DTEPA by an MoEFCC notification on March 10. All three had raised concerns over the project in February.
