What is Mahavitaran?
Do we know the governing body that lights all the houses in Maharashtra? The largest distributor of electricity in India, Mahavitaran or Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited, is the sole authority that distributes electricity to the entire state of Maharashtra, except a few cities where Reliance, Tata or Adani are substantial distributors. MSEDCL’s power sources are thermal, gas, hydro and non-conventional sources like wind, solar, bagasse, etc.
Earlier, Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) was looking after the electricity in the state. But after the Electricity Act 2003, the board got separated into four parts, viz. MSEB Holding Company Limited, Mahanirmiti or Maharashtra State Power Generation Company Limited (MSPGCL), Mahapreshan or Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company Limited (MSETCL) and Mahavitaran or Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL).
