Why Do Transmission Line Projects In India Get Delayed?
Total Articles: 5
The power sector in India comprises of three pillars, power generation, power transmission and power distribution, and it is important for all the three pillars to be in the prime of their health in order to fulfil the ever growing demand of electricity in the country. In order to meet this need, the government has planned to increase the number of power generation units, transmission lines and to improve the distribution network. The task is not as simple as it sounds and requires a great deal of thinking, immaculate planning and efficient hands to deliver the results. The general feeling in India is that if a state or the central government rolls out a project then it will never be completed on time. This belief is not misplaced at all as most of the times the delivery of the projects is delayed. Although there are a lot of factors which cause these delays there are some which can be avoided.
Transmission line projects in India face quite a few challenges. The tendering process of the projects is the first area of concern as it is a time consuming process and delay in awarding a tender to suitable vendor results in delay in delivery of the project. The tendering system in itself is quite interesting as the tender is awarded to the lowest bidder. How can one expect the quality of the end product to be supreme if the vendor is not paid accordingly? The next challenge that comes along is the acquisition of land needed to set up the towers. It is again a time consuming exercise and legal tussles further delay the projects. The terrain and landscape of the area through which the transmission lines are to be laid becomes the next challenge for the companies because not all of them have the desired equipments and machinery to cope with the demands thrown by the terrain.
Apart from the above mentioned challenges which are faced by transmission line projects in India, and are avoidable to a certain extent, there are few which are unavoidable. Weather is the most common culprit; the projects can get delayed either due to extremely cold conditions, extremely hot weather or due to incessant rains. All these factors together decide how much time it will take from the conception to the delivery of a transmission line project in India. In order to avoid such delays the entire procedure or the process needs to be fine-tuned. Projects should only be awarded to companies which have advanced equipment and machinery, trained and efficient staff and global quality standards. If we need the best infrastructure then we must be ready to spend the right amount of money to get the things done in a timely manner. The task does not get over after the delivery of a project, it is equally important to keep the infrastructure in good health which means it needs to be looked after and maintained properly.
