.First need to understand this what’s the parameter to check if a village is electrified?
According to the Government site data.gov.in a village would be declared as electrified if:
1) Basic infrastructure such as Distribution Transformer and Distribution lines are provided in the inhabited locality as well as the Dalit Basti/ hamlet where it exists. (For electrification through Non Conventional Energy Sources a Distribution transformer may not be necessary).
2) Electricity is provided to public places like Schools, Panchayat Office, Health Centres, Dispensaries, Community centers, etc. and
3) the number of households electrified should be at least 10% of the total number of households in the village. The data contains details on the progress made towards village electrification for the month. The detail includes the cumulative achievement, percentage of villages electrified along with the number of electrified villages.
