Sector Structure


As a part of the reform process,the Government of Gujarat has unbundled the various functions of GEB. As a result of this unbundling,Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL) has taken up the responsibility of electricity generation. Electricity Transmission has been entrusted to the already existing company - GETCO. Distribution network in the state has been split up among four distribution companies, which cater to the northern, central, southern, and western parts of the state respectively. All these companies have been structured as subsidiaries of a holding company, Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL). GUVNL is also the single bulk buyer in the state as well as the bulk supplier to distribution companies. It will also carry out the trading function in the state. The pictorial representation of the restructuring is as given below:
