Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana (DDU-GJY) was examined by CAG however CAG found various flaws in discoms from reaching its goals. The CAG raised concerns on a number of issues, including the declaration of non-electrical villages as electrified, failure to reach feeder segregation goals, and the failure to replace faulty meters that resulted in a loss of Rs. 50 crores.
According to the government's accounting watchdog, the discom failed to meet DDUGJY's three tiers of requirements for feeder segregation, distribution infrastructure improvement, and 100% electrification.
Nine districts, or 27.27% of the project, out of the 33 districts for which discoms prepared full project reports and for which Rs 2819 crore was approved, were chosen by the CAG for a thorough examination of execution.
Adani, on the other hand, was compensated by Rajasthan's state-owned power distribution businesses for higher fuel expenses with a payment of Rs. 3,000 crore plus interest. The Rajasthan discoms were ordered by the Supreme Court on February 25, 2023 to pay Rs 3,048.63 crore plus interest within four weeks, or the discom executives would have to make an in-person appearance. It further specifies that the discoms would be held in contempt of court otherwise.
