For the first time, India becomes net exporter of power
30 March 2017 Current Affairs: India has become a net exporter of electricity during the April-February period this fiscal for the first time.

During the current year 2016-17, India has exported around 5,798 million units of electricity to Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

This is 4 percent higher than what India bought from Bhutan, which has been a steady supplier of hydro-electricity to the country since the eighties.

New transmission lines with Bangladesh and Myanmar helped India sell more.

Union Minister of Power (state independent charge): Piyush Goyal
