"The Government has been working hard to electrify all villages in the country and we also want to achieve 24X7 power for all by March 2019", the statement said. "When I first did a review, I was told this will take seven years. I find that if you back officials they will deliver", he said. His message, according to media reports and as per what Finance Minister Arun Jaitley later revealed, focussed on four themes: Organisational expansion, an uncompromising fight against corruption, social welfare, and flagship schemes like Swachh Bharat which needed to be converted into popular movements and utilised in the fight against terrorism. For urban households the outlay is Rs 2,295 crore while GBS is Rs 1,732.50 crore. The project will result in 100 percent electrification in Indian households.

The states will need to complete the electrification by December 2018 and the government will identify those eligible for free electricity connections across the country.
