Consultation on the draft National Energy Policy

Odisha | July 2017

The NITI Aayog recently came out with the draft National Energy Policy and put it on their website on June 27, 2017.  The last date for public comments was given as July 14.  This very short time given for a large and yet not well connected nation like India, again shows the government’s total apathy in letting any public discourse develop on major policy issues, doing token “consultations”, and push through major policy changes. On our and many other CSOs request, the deadline for comments & suggestions was extended by 10 days, to July 24, 2017.
