REC organizes workshop on Integrated Digital Platform for DISCOMs


Gurugram: : On Thursday, REC Limited, a Maharatna CPSE under the Ministry of Power, held a workshop titled ‘Integrated Digital Platform for Power Distribution Sector’ at its Gurugram corporate office. The training emphasized the relevance of the Integrated Web platform, which was built largely to operationalize the Revamped Distribution Sector Scheme (RDSS), as well as familiarizing ourselves with how to use the platform to frequently update and monitor the scheme’s development..

More than 200 people attended the session, representing all state DISCOMs, program management agencies (PMAs), REC-TPQMAs, and other stakeholders, including PFC. Additionally, 300 senior officials from DISCOMs, PMAs, PFCs, and other stakeholders attended the event via video conference.

Shri Rahul Dwivedi, ED (PMD), REC, spoke with participants and other senior officials, highlighting the importance of the integrated online platform and asking DISCOMs to use it. Shri Dwivedi stated, “Currently, there is no digital platform to synergize data from various schemes and reporting modules, which is an issue that this platform aims to address. This platform can measure progress at every level of the process, ensuring increased visibility, openness, and accountability in power distribution.”

This platform has the ability to track progress at every stage of the process, will ensure greater visibility, transparency, and accountability in the power distribution sector, and is set to be a game-changer for the sector to ensure schemes are implemented efficiently and effectively across the country.”

The integrated web platform was developed by RDSS to monitor main schemes and reports for the Indian electricity distribution sector, with the goal of digitally implementing the RDSS plan. This platform’s modules include: RDSS, Consumer Service Rating of DISCOMs (CSRD), Energy Accounting, Additional GSDP Borrowing, Integrated Rating of DISCOMs, Key Regulatory Parameters, Annual Performance of State Utilities, and Integration with the PRAAPTI Portal.

The attendees had the opportunity to become acquainted with the platform and gain insights. The session closed with a positive perspective for the future of the electricity distribution sector, with participants keen to capitalize on the benefits of the Integrated Digital Platform to promote advancement and innovation.

The Ministry of Power, REC, and the Power Finance Corporation collaborated to design and develop the integrated digital platform.
