- PuVVNL had come up with Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutikaran Yojana financed by Government of India. The scheme aimed to provide electricity in all the villages of eastern Uttar Pradesh by 2008. As per 2011 report among 27,503 villages in the region, electricity has reached 27,492 villages and among 11,20,568 Below Poverty Level houses, free electricity has been supplied to 8,87,740 houses.

Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (RAPDRP) – This programme was targeted for urban areas having more than 30,000 population. It aimed at improving customer service and establishing computerized applications for energy auditing ad accounting. The scheme also focussed on establishing baseline data.

Urban Varanasi has witnessed a steady rise in electricity consumption. Energy consumption that was around 2,927 kilowatt (kw) in the last decade has increased to 5, 587kw. Varanasi Nagar Nigam in previous years had to pay approximate Rs16 crore electricity bill to PuVVNL.

    मैं रूखसाना बेगम। मूझे नया कनेक्शन लेना है ।मैने पुरा कागजात कम्पलीट कर लिया है । ऊसके बावजूद मेरा काम नही हो रहा है ।करीब करीब 5 महीने का समय हो गया मेरा काम नही हो रहा है ।जब जब मै तब तब वहां J.E नही नही रहते ।फोन करने पर हमेसा कहते हैं। कि आज मै ड्यूट पर नही हूँ ।बताइये अब मुझे कया करना चाहिए । जा कर कोर्ट में शीकायत कर दें।
