In the Power Sector, Distribution system plays an vital role where, The gap between the average revenue Realization and the average cost of the supply has been constantly increa s- ing since a decade. power is critical infrastructure for economic growth. However the financial growth of SEB’s (State Electric i- ty board)has become a matter of grave concern considering that their losses have reached a alarming level of 26,000crores which is equivalent to 1.5% of GDP in the year 2001 , All - India ave r- age AT&C losses (Aggregate Technical and Commercial ) were pegged at 27.15% in 2009, in which southern region had an a v- erage of 19.49% and the north - eastern region 36.44%. Some states had loss levels as high as 70% and a t the same time, some others had the loss average in single digit. So there is an eme r- gency in reducing these AT&C losses by various preventive methods and reduction techniques so that we can utilize the power to various sectors i.e., we can reduce them to some extent but we can not eliminate them completely we can reduce them to permissible Level of less than 15%. B y using some best practiced methods such that we can eliminate the electricity crisis.
