Why Odisha suffers from Electricity Crisis ?

The State  Govt. has taken decision  for power  cut  of one  hour   in urban areas and more than  four hours  in rural areas in every  till June 2016.  The reason cited by Govt. is   shortage of water  in  Hirakud Dam  and other Dams.  But there are  other reasons  for which   Odisha suffers  from   shortage of electricity.   A good number of companies signed MOU with Govt. to set up  power  plant    has  failed  to  do so since last  fifteen years. Similarly, the  Companies signed MOU to generate Hydro-power  have also fialed to set the  Dydro-Power project.  The details of information obtained through RTI  is as follows. 

3 out of 28 MOU Signed Companies have started power generation plant in Odisha
  
Since coming to power in 2000,  Nabin Patnaik  Govt.  has signed  MOU with number of Companies  for  establishment of industries  in the state.  The basic purpose behind signing MOU and inviting companies to the state is to generate employment   and bring prosperity   in the state. The State Govt. has also taken a lot of credit by attracting and allowing a number of companies to Odisha to start their operation in the state. But the result is big zero.

  1. Nice information. Can we get the information on how the state has favoured these companies may be in the form of giving them subsidized land and water.
