PM Modi had last year launched a scheme for LED bulb distribution under the domestic efficient lighting programme (DELP) in Delhi; and a National Programme for LED-based Home and Street Lighting. He had described the LED bulb as a â€˜Prakash Pathâ€™ (way to light).
The initiative expects to reduce import bills and save the environment. Modi had also launched a web-based system to enable consumers in Delhi to register requests for procuring LED bulbs.
