New Delhi, Dec 5 (IANS) A power distribution company belonging to the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group met a high level delegation from Afghanistan Friday to rebuild electricity distribution in that war-ravaged country. The Afghan delegation led by Deputy Minister for Energy, Ahmed Wali Shairzay, met officials of power distribution firm BSES to study issues like distribution and commercial losses, the role of information technology (IT) in power distribution, and capital investments.
“I am very much impressed by the spectacular turnaround brought about by BSES. We would like to work with them,” Shairzay told reporters later.
Appreciating Afghanistan’s interest in his company, BSES chairman Lalit Jalan said: “This visit is a further pointer to the success of the power privatisation process in Delhi. I am happy to note that the success of the power reforms is generating interest not only within the country but also across international borders.”
Two group companies, BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd, distribute power in the national capital.
