  1. JNNSM will change the solar market scene. Proper guidlines to be given by govt. authorities and officials to the solar product re-seller, promoters, and manufacuters, then only these kind programes will reach to the buyer.

    dear sir,
    as mentioned above that benchmark cost of off grid solar power plants for north east areas which includes Uttarakhand also.
    but subsidy allotted to private companies in this area is 30% only
    ALTHOUGH ACCORDING TO THE GOVT. NOTIFICATION MENTIONED BELOW.

    5/23/2009 – P&C Dated: 16.06.2010
    Government of India

    5.4 Capital subsidy of 90% of the benchmark cost, would be available for special category states, viz.

    kindly clarify subsidy %age for Uttarakhand (North East State) for Private Party
