A Handbook of Legal Options for Universal Service Obligation for the Energy Services in Rural India

Today 94% of urban households in India are electrified, whereas in rural India only 60% of households are electrified leading to more than 43% still using kerosene to light their homes. Is it just a matter of scale or is there lethargy in providing the basic minimum or is it an outright violation of a basic fundamental right?

This report not only sets the context of rural energy access and obligations of the state but also examines the various legal options that now exist to ensure that rural energy access becomes not just a matter of state largesse but a statutory obligation leading to a basic right of every Indian living in rural India.
