MNRE Invites EoI for Evaluating Components of PM KUSUM Scheme

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has invited Expression of Interest (EOI) from reputed consultants and experts to undertake an evaluation of Component-A and Component-C of the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evem Utthan Mahabhiyan (PM KUSUM) Scheme.


This scheme was launched during the month of March last year and has three components:

  • Component-A: Installation of 10 GW of renewable energy power plants of individual plant capacity up to 2 MW on barren and fallow land.
  • Component-B: Installation of 17.5 lakh standalone solar pumps of capacity up to 7.5 HP.
  • Component-C: Solarization of 10 lakh existing grid-connected agricultural pumps of pump capacity up to 7.5 HP.

Both, components A and C have been implemented in pilot mode during 2019-20 with target of 1 GW capacity and 1 lakh solarizations respectively.

Now, as per approval of the scheme, an evaluation of Component A and C has to be conducted before scale-up of the scheme for targeted capacities of 10 GW of grid-connected renewable power and 10 lakh solarizations of existing pumps, the Ministry said in a statement.

The motive behind the study is to evaluate the implementation of both Components A and C of the scheme via collecting information from state implementing agencies, beneficiaries, Discoms and other stakeholders, assess the performance of these components for different stakeholders and recommend for further scale-up along with required modifications in the implementation process of these components of the scheme.

For the eligibility criterion, reputed consultants or consulting organizations having an experience of at least 5 years in conducting similar assignments and an annual turnover of at least Rs 1.50 crore per year during the last 3 years will be eligible. Also, those having sector-specific experience and in-house capability to manage the assignment will be an added advantage.

After shortlisting eligible EoI, the shortlisted consultancy firms will be invited to submit a detailed proposal which contains technical bid, financial bid and earnest money deposited (EMD).
