Arunachal Pradesh as an Emerging Power House


  • Ram Krishna Mandal

    (D N Govt College Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh, India)


Power is one of the most urgent infrastructural facilities. Power stands at the root of all kinds of development. Looking at the enormous hydro-electric potentials of Arunachal Pradesh, the power may be developed as industry and a substantial revenue can be earned by selling the power to other states of the country. If once, these hydro potentials are fully harnessed, it must turn the fate of the territory and serve the larger interest of the country. At the same time, the fund spent by the government to function the diesel generators will be saved and the pollution created by them will be stopped. So far Arunachal economy is concerned, the consumption of commercial energy is a recent phenomenon. The consumption of commercial energy under industrial sector is at its lowest ebb. By and large, the industrial units are considerably small, where the use of manual labour is prominent. In some of the small scale industrial units and medium scale ones, the commercial energy is consumed. But such consumption accounts for insignificant quantity. During recent years, the use of commercial energy is noticed to have picked up. But the magnitude of the consumption of commercial energy under agricultural sector may be termed still insignificant. Paper explores the potentials of this energy sector Arunachal Pradesh, an Indian state.
