Ujwal DICOM Assurance Yojana, popularly known as UDAY Scheme, was launched by the Ministry of Power in the year 2015. The scheme aims to provide financial and operational profitability to the state owned power distribution companies (DISCOMs).
DISCOMS are the units that are charged with the responsibility of purchasing power from the power generation companies and selling it to the ultimate consumers. The primary reason for the failure of these DISCOMs to achieve financial profitability is their failure to collect the total cost of the power purchased from the power generation companies while selling them to the final consumers.
Another important purpose of the scheme was to achieve uninterrupted and affordable power supply in every corner of the country. The scheme was envisioned keeping in mind the various needs of the citizens of the country when it comes to power generation and supply. Bearing this mind, the scheme has set some objectives that it aims to achieve under this scheme.
