Prakash Path (National Program for LED)

Under Prakash Path (National Program for LED based home and street lighting), launched by the Prime Minister,

  • LED bulbs shall be used to replace existing ICLs in domestic households in a period of 1 year starting from Mar,’15
  • Similarly, existing street lights are proposed to be replaced with cost effective LEDs
  • Incandescent Lamps are primarily used for domestic household lighting. Under the government’s initiative, it is expected that ICL’s in India top 100 cities would be replaced by LED’s to encourage energy efficiency and cost savings
  • As a step towards phasing out of ICL’s and increasing the usage of LED’s, 100W ICL’s have been banned for sale and this will be followed by 60W ICLs in CY16 and 40W in CY17
  • As part of this program in Delhi, 10mn energy efficient LED bulbs shall be distributed to consumers (with a seven year warranty) which shall lead to an annual saving of 250mn units annually

Under this schemes, 2 LED lamps are given to the consumer which shall be used to replaced the existing working ICLs at a price of Rs10 and then the balance Rs120 is deducted from the consumer over the following 12 months; this implies that the total cost to the consumer comes to Rs130 for each LED lamps vs. the market price of Rs350‐400/lamps for the same LED lamp. A warranty of 5‐6 years is provided to the customer.
