The Minister of State for Power, Coal, New & Renewable Energy and Mines, Piyush Goyal, in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on Thursday informed that interventions under Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY) including reduction in interest costs & cost of power and efficiency gains have yielded encouraging results.

However, different states have different trajectories since they have joined UDAY at different time.
