Power sector

The Union Power Minister, Mr Suresh Prabhu, is of the opinion that "Private investments in power sector without reforms are wrong" (Business Line, July 7). But uniform application of "reforms" has also failed in some States. So, private investment need not be simply rejected. It has to be properly used with the required changes.

Mere laws against theft may not solve the problem. Investment should be made to modernise transmission so that both transmission loss and theft can be controlled.
