Government launches URJA MITRA app

​Union Ministry of Power has launched URJA MITRA app for empowering citizens by real time information sharing on power supply. The app is a first of its kind which provides a central platform, web-portal (www.urjamitra.com) as well as mobile app for state power Distribution utilities to disseminate power outage information to rural/ urban power consumers through SMS/ push/email notifications across the country. 

Rural Feeder Monitoring Scheme


The Ministry also inaugurated Rural Feeder Monitoring Scheme to monitor the quantity and quality parameters of power supply in rural areas of the country. The entire data under the scheme will be hosted on National Power Portal (NPP) on real time basis and may be accessed by various stake holders through web services. 

 Background-

The Union Government has set December 2017 as the deadline to achieve 100% rural feeder monitoring by installing additional meters and modems on all feeders across the country. The purpose of this move is to facilitate real time communication of faults appearing in the power supply. These meters will be geo-tagged to pin point the location and cause of the fault and address it at the earliest.
