The government had announced several schemes but still there is not a very remarkable growth in it as per the data of census 2001 in rural India only 56% households have an electricity connection and 43% still use kerosene. About 90% of the rural households use bio-fuels such as crop residues, dung and fuel wood to meet their energy requirement for cooking.
