At distribution level, it will provide the information of revenue and energy loss. Two elements were taken into considerations in AT&C losses. The union government has launched the restructured accelerated power development reform program (R-APDRP) to reduce the transmission losses and improve the power sector of state utilities. AT&C losses by power Finance Corporation of CEA reported transmission and distribution losses year wise.
