National Grid India History 

  • Grid management in India began in the 1960s on a regional basis. Grids were initially connected to form a regional grid. Going to follow this, India was divided into five grid-based regions:
  • Northern Grid
  • Eastern Grid
  • Western Grid
  • North Eastern Grid and
  • Southern region.
  • In October 1991, the North Eastern and Eastern Grids were linked. In March 2003, the Western Grid and the North Eastern Grid were linked.
  • The North and East grids were connected in 2006. As a result, four regional grids, the Northern, Eastern, Western, and North Eastern grids, were interconnected to form a single-frequency central grid.
  • With the commencement of the 765kV Raichur-Solapur Power line in 2013, the Southern Region was linked to the Central Grid.
  • With this, the goal of ‘ONE NATION’-‘ONE GRID’-‘ONE FREQUENCY’ was met.
