Manipur, India: Lighting Up Lives

Manipur is one of the resource-rich states of the North-East Region of India. Despite being well-endowed with natural resources, Manipur, like the rest of the region, continues to lag in development. Poverty levels are high and, with few industries or businesses, most people depend on low-value agriculture. Power shortage has been one of the major constraints to economic development in the state. Until recently, one-third of Manipur’s 2.8 million people did not have access to electricity. Those that did often received it for an average of 6-8 hours a day. In 2014, the state started scripting a turnaround, and has now significantly improved power supply to its people. So, how did Manipur achieve this?
