Improved Electricity Access for Slum Dwellers in Mumbai, India


The city of Mumbai has over 6 million slum dwellers, a large number of whom do not have access to legal electrical connections. The Improved Electricity Access project was a pilot project that sought to increase access to safe electricity supply in urban slums in Mumbai through targeted output-based subsides. The pilot focused on select slums within Mumbai, but had the potential for scale-up in other communities in Mumbai and across India.
