I.T. INITIATIVE IN PVVNL

 1. Objective

The power sector in India is going through a phase of transition. The primary objective of this transformation is to move from a structure dominated by vertically integrated state-owned utilities to one with competition not only at wholesale but also at the retail level. One of the key initiatives has been to set up autonomous regulations, which is separate from the policy and operational aspects. The Electricity Regulatory Commissions (Central as well as State) is now playing an important role in facilitating this transformation through effective regulations. The Utilities also are gearing up themselves to match the expectations of Government, Consumers and Funding Agencies. The activities that are being taken up by the utilities include not only revamping of the generation, distribution and transmission system but also establishing an Information System for enabling timely and speedy decisions. In view of above, PVVNL intend to implement an integrated information system in their Corporate and their distribution Segment.

           An Enterprise application Software can be developed

           Suitable hardware & networking can be procured and installed for running the above software 

           Training of the users for PVVNL on the operational processes of the software can be given. The Software so developed shall be able to support the recent initiatives taken by PVVNL to improve its performance.
