The Distribution function of the entire State is now looked after by APDCL. APDCL is continuing the power sector reforms process that helps in reducing the transmission and distribution losses, achieving 100% metering, providing Information Technology solutions and improving the overall performance of the company. However this process can be a success only if all the employees in ASEB and its successor companies are motivated for hard work as well as for giving better service to the consumers. Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd. has ambitious plan of upgrading and modernizing distribution system. Intervention of Information Technology and IT enabled services will be implemented to facilitate better interface between customers and the Company. We are setting up a State of the Art Data Centre linking it with the most of the towns on real time basis. Further upgradation of Network is also in the offing. All the villages will be provided electricity in phased manner under Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutikaran Yojana which is already under implementation throughout the State.
