Executive Summary

As developing countries seek to improve their economic prospects, electricity reform has been widely viewed as a central part of this effort. While the focus of most research to date has been at economy or utility level; there has been much less research on regional outcomes. India presents a unique case, as its states share a common economic and political system, whilst having been given considerable flexibility in how they implement reform, thus allowing a comparative analysis of alternative approaches. This paper contributes through an econometric analysis of the determinants and impact of electricity reform in India, giving special regard to its political economy and regional diversity.
