The concept of power supply in India  for Smart  Grid is quite different as we are trying to  bridge gap between  supply & demand  and eradicate the menace of power  theft which is a root  cause of all ills of power sector for providing adequate  and quality supply at  reasonable  rates/price to the end users. The information technology (IT) & operational  technology (OT)  is being established  for  monitoring  the parameters of the system in a  bid  to know  the status of  power flow,  peak load management, system outage management, power quality and  supervisory control and  data acquisition  (SCADA).

The aim  is to provide  uninterrupted   quality Power  supply  which is only possible if  the availability of power  is assured, which   may be possible  at some chosen

locations/ cities, and now in assigned smart cities, by Govt. of India.  Here again the  continuity of  supply  may be  sticky job.   Since there are smart cities, there should be smart grids as well . The term  smart gird is   borrowed from    western countries where IT & OT were introduced  longtime ago  and  well established while in India it is in  infant  stage.

Unless we are  self sufficient  for power supply at National level  including remote area, in all aspects our smart grid   will   be a localized    affair. The possibility  of tripping supply will always be lurking  unless it  is  connected  to  a synchronized system through zonal/ regional/national level.  In  this direction,  MOP has started over a dozen smart grid projects and allocated  funds as well, the beginning is good which is required to be expanded  at  number of other places.  The mission of establishing smart grids at  National level is a long drawn process, which  requires  perseverance, patience & hard work.
