The All-India Power Engineers Federation recently called for a strike in protest of the government’s intention to introduce the Electricity (Amendment) Bill 2022 in the Indian Parliament. The bill, which amends the Electricity Act of 2003, aims to bring competition and accountability to electricity distribution, which is the weakest link in the power sector.
