Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal who is currently in London launched the Ujala Scheme related to the energy efficient LED bulbs on Saturday evening, reported news agency ANI. At the event, Goyal asked everyone to be a part of this revolution in energy efficiency. “All should become ambassadors of this revolution on energy efficiency become evangelists who will take this message far & wide,” he was quoted as saying by the agency. He added that this scheme will make London shine and appear as India does on the world map from NASA satellite pictures. “It can actually make London also shine as bright as we see India shining when we see World Map from NASA satellite pictures,” Goyal said.

Earlier in the day, he had said that the government has a “holistic vision” to make it easier to do business in India and was working to ensure that every household in the country has access to energy in two years, reported news agency PTI. Goyal who is London for the India-UK Roundtable on Energy added that he has taken a personal pledge to work towards energy access for every household in India by 2019. “We are working on solutions to hit our targets before 2022, as the Indian government creates the foundations with a 100-year horizon in view,” Goyal said at the UK-India Conclave yesterday.

He had also launched the state-run National Thermal Power Corporation’s rupee-denominated ‘Masala Bond’ on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), which has raised around Rs 2,000 crore. “We listed the NTPC Masala Bond at the London Stock Exchange, which is a sign of the scale in India. In the long run, the rupee will be a currency with most stable exchange rate. We are on the path of growth and we want the rest of the world to be our partner in that growth,” he had said on the sidelines of the UK-India Awards on Friday evening.

      Actions speak louder than words. Laws of India were made to squeeze blood from anybody who enters India. The World is now aware of the Reservations-Extortion Raj of India. Everybody remembers Comrade Pranab's retrospective laws to trap Vodaphone and Cairn and that Modi Sarkar did a 'U' turn on not using the law

              Good initiative. Was started in all status of india. Paid only Rs.100 each for led bulbs. As expected, the novel cause is experiencing failures. More over there are no provisions for replacement. The traders dont allow such good initiative to suceed
