The government would soon draft a legislation to make states accountable for introducing new power sector reforms to improve the financial health of distribution companies.

“This is part of the restructuring package; there will be a State Electricity Distribution Responsibility Bill which will be drafted by the ministry of power and would be sent to the states for enactment. We are working on that,” power secretary P Uma Shankar told reporters here.

“The Bill is mainly to put the onus on state governments for the health of state electricity boards (SEBs),” he said.
