15 states in India show lower annual per capita power consumption in comparison of national average!

The above graph does not include 2 Union Territories – Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu – as the consumption of electricity in both these places is ten times that of National average. One of the reasons being that these are ports & Industrial places with very less residential consumption of Electricity. So the figure in those 2 UT’s show unusually high.

It is interesting to note that on national level, India’s energy consumption is already one of the lowest in the world. And if you consider states like Bihar, they live on fraction of electricity as compared to developed world!
