RECThe Centre has offered long-term soft loans to states to provide electricity connections in easy monthly installments to households to meet its power-for-all commitment, Power Minister Piyush Goyal said  on 07-10-2016.

State-run Rural Electrification Corp will offer 10-15 year loans at low interest rates to power distribution companies to finance capital expenditure incurred by states in offering electricity connections to households at installments of Rs 100 per month, said Goyal, who is also the minister for coal, renewable energy and mines.

Currently, consumers have to pay Rs 4,000-5,000 to get an electricity connection.

The NDA government has committed to provide electricity to all by March 2019.
