Power sector being the key corner stone for infrastructure growth and sustainable development of country, Government of India has been bringing in policy amendment to facilitate investor confidence and stake holder satisfaction of all the facets of the power sector. As of September 2018, a draft amendment to Electricity Act, 2003 has been introduced. It discusses separation of
content & carriage, direct benefit transfer of subsidy, 24*7 Power supply is an obligation, penalisation on violation of PPA, setting up Smart Meter and Prepaid Meters along with regulations related to the same. Scheme like, SAUBHAGYA and SHAKTI have been introduced to strengthen Power Generation sector of India.

The Government of India has released its roadmap to achieve 175 GW capacity in renewable energy by 2022 and based on execution trend since last 4 year, industry is seeking to revise the target to around 227 GW. Further, it is anticipated that, coal-based power generation capacity
in India, which currently stands at 190.29GW is expected to reach around 400 GW by 2040. Energy deficit of the country ahs reduced to 0.7 percent in FY 18, from 4.2 percent in FY 14.
However, post RBI notification dated 12th February 2018, vis-à-vis resolution of stressed assets many large power projects might turn NPAs. Around 40 GW project capacity are stressed as of now, out of which around 15 GW are yet to be commissioned. While it poses a severe threat
to power as well as banking sector of the country, it also offers huge opportunity for new investments by FIIs and big corporate houses with deep pocket to acquire the stressed asset at lower costs and make it profitable in long run. In November 2018, Renascent Power Ventures
Pte Ltd acquired 75.01 per cent stake in Prayagraj Power Generation Company Limited (PPGCL) for US$ 854.94 million. With declining bid price in renewable projects also, merger and consolidation is the way forward. In August 2018, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (KKR) acquired
