Ministry of Power in India is jittery after massive grid failure . It had last made a plan to promote research and development titled NPP. This plan explains what are the perspectives it has to salvage the bad shape power sector which has a accumulated loss of staggering 40-50 billion dollars till date and worlds largest grid failure to its credit.

The perspective is grossly flawed at best. These days no worthwhile research in Power is possible without an international effort.In stark contrast to what China intends doing it talks of the same institutions that have not produced much by way of research so far in last 60 years. Govt has massive investments in these institutions but output is very little and so far India has not been able to produce one locally designed HT breaker to say the least.Load break switch are being made by much smaller nations for 11 KV and 33 KV but in INdia we need foreign technologuy.

The perspective has no room for foreign consultants or collaboration. There is a repeated talk of IPR - which says that any funds from govt will entitle it to have atleast half of IPR rights.This is the mentality of late 60's and not of modern times. Which foreign consultant will agree to it? The smart grid project in Denmark was done by some seven organizations.We have no scope for such a thing. That means we are now guaranteeing failure like it has been for last so many years.

Unless we change this type of perspective things are not oing to get ahead for sure.As far as IPR is concerned less said the better. The RAPDRP project has several important elements taken from my Project of smart metering made and given in october 2003 fior which group was not given even a sample project..
