Mr. Reji Pilliai, President, ISGF said that “The Story of Haryana Discom’s turn around in last 3 years is very inspiring for other state government owned Discoms in India. From a loss of over Rs. 2200 Crore in 2015, the Haryana Discom’s have made a profit of Rs. 400 Crore in 2018. This was made possible by the management team with focus and dedication who were allowed to execute the plan without political interference. The CMD of the Haryana Discom’s is the same for last 4 years. This is an excellent example that there should be a stable leadership in Discom’s. Distribution Utility Meet has emerged as a unified platform of the Discom’s in the country to voice their concerns about common issues as well as learn from each other in their grid modernization journey”
