Deregulation basically means restructuring the whole power system scheme, giving it a new face which is more likely to be vastly accepted by the consumers. India is far behind other countries in context of deregulation. So there is a need to concentrate more in this field. Before carrying out the whole process, we must have an idea of the present status. It will help us to confine our study. So the whole scenario of the process has been studied.


Deregulation, privatization, regulation, generation economy.
