In his latest review of the ministries of power and new & renewable energy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi  said that since power-related problems vary across regions and states, a one-size-fits-all policy should be avoided. 

“The Ministry should put in place state-specific solutions to incentivize each state to improve its performance,” the PM said, according to the official statement by his office.
