The government has set up a National Power Committee to ensure strict discipline and resolve inter-state issues in utilization of electricity grids in the country.

According to an order by the Ministry of Power, the panel will address issues among Regional Power Committees that work towards improving operational performance of grids in a particular region.

The committee's role will be crucial in evolving a common approach to issues related to reliability and security of the power grid system in the country, against the backdrop of growing complexity in managing them.

Chairperson of the Central Electricity Authority, the apex planning body for the power sector, will be heading the 18-member committee.

The panel is required to meet at least once in every six months and members can meet anytime to discuss any issue.
