Akshay Urja

In 2015 under a scheme, the shops were renamed as “Akshay Urja Shops” with a view to cover wider sale and service of all renewable energy devices and systems including solar energy products.

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been promoting the establishment of Aditya Solar Shops in major cities of the country since 1995 with a view to make solar energy products easily available and to provide easy after sales repair services. In 2015 under a scheme, the shops were renamed as “Akshay Urja Shops” with a view to cover wider sale and service of all renewable energy devices and systems including solar energy products. The network of the shops was also expanded by encouraging private entrepreneurs and NGOs to set up and operate such shops in all districts of the country. Now the ministry has announced that implementation of the “Akshay Urja Shops Programme” beyond 12th Plan period (31.03.2017) has been reviewed and has decided to discontinue the “Akshay Urja Shops Programme” beyond the Plan period.

The ministry notes that the pending liabilities will be settled in terms of the previous guidelines.

The main objective of the programme was to support the establishment of one shop in each district for creation of a network of retail outlets in form of “akshay urja shops “ in all the districts for sale and service of solar energy and other renewable energy products.
