    1. It’s 6% of the quantity of power ditributed by MSEDCL for year 2010-11. Please see the graph (in post). I understand your question that you need exact RPO for the MSEDCL and it can be possible only if we have quantity of power distributed by it.

      1. Yes Shyam, u r correct.. I need the MU distributed by..MSEDCL. I tried on their web site but cudn’t get. Can u help me?
