Electricity in Pune

Electricity in Pune is supplied by the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. (MSDECL), a public sector undertaking by the state government. Electricity is primarily derived from hydro, thermal and gas sources with a little bit from non-conventional sources such as solar and wind.

Electricity Board in Pune

Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park in Hinjewadi enjoys uninterrupted power supply, thanks to the electricity board’s interlinking of all substations in the park. A new substation with capacity of 400/220 KV is being built to augment existing facilities. Integrated townships at Hadpsar also enjoy uninterrupted power due to their own substations. Magarpatta City has its own 220 KV thermal power station. In addition, a biogas plant and over 7,000 solar water heating panels augment electricity generation here. 

Pune Electricity Board


Electricity distribution in Pune is through a network of sub-stations, transformers, feeders, high tension and low tension lines. For the convenience of consumers, MSEDCL has facilitated payment of bills online, delivery of bills through e-mail, opened consumer facilitation centres, a 24x7 centralised customer care centre, call centres and redressal of complaints desk at the circle office. Citizens can also apply online for a new connection.

Pune is where the electricity board started implementing its zero load shedding model as well as supplying electricity meters at the doorstep. MSDECL has also efficiently reduced distribution losses through various measures including better vigilance to reduce power theft, improving accessibility of meters, replacing meters more than 10 years old, accurate energy accounting, installation of high quality meters at system points, metering of distribution transformer centres and a franchisee model for electricity distribution. 

To prevent common mishaps, MSEDCL in Pune has issued guidelines to citizens which include staying away from snapped or dangling lines, building well away from high tension and low tension wires, switching off damp switchboards and electric appliances, checking internal wiring regularly, informing the board about transformers under water, checking earthing, installing dish antennae away from electric cables, rectify faults using licensed electrical contractors only, not parking two-wheelers next to electric poles and not using poles for ting clotheslines and animals.

Pune Electricity Tariff


MSEDCL’s per unit rate is Rs 4.67 for those consuming electricity between 0-100 units. For consumers whose consumption is more, between 101 and 300 units, the rate is Rs 6.58 per unit. Beyond that, between 301-500 units, it costs Rs 8.57 per unit. 

MSEDCL undertook installing prepaid electricity meters wherein consumers can buy power units by making an advance payment and use recharge coupons to buy more. They were entitled to a five per cent discount on their electricity bills with the cost of the meter being borne by the electricity board. If a meter is defective and not working properly, consumers are expected to bring this to the notice of the electricity board immediately and request a replacement.

    Very often bills don't comeSometimes meter reading is done after 45 days or more so the reading goes beyond 300 units so rate per unit goes up to 6.58

    vendors dont send meter reader. and electricity company just write current and previous reading same consumption 100 units. in next bill they are not taking it on account and just calculate previous reading of last bill. means just make profit of 100 units bill with all charges. consumer is looser on slackness of company vendor.

    You are correct .. when they charge you on actual reading after 6 months, we are paying at 9 per unit instead of 4.5
