The State government will not privatise the power distribution system of the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB), Power Minister Aryadan Mohammed has said. Replying to a notice for an adjournment motion given by A.K. Balan in the Assembly on 18-02-2013 on the bid to privatise the power distribution system and the Central government directive to apprise it of the action plan for privatisation within a fortnight, Mr. Mohammed said the Centre had given three options for improving the efficiency of the system. It had proposed public-private participation, total privatisation, franchisee mode as well as other options for increasing the efficiency of the distribution system. All such options came up for discussions at a meeting of Power Ministers of the States recently. The government was of the firm opinion that the existing system was sufficient to reduce the transmission loss and need not experiment with other options.
