The Indian government has set very high targets for the power sector in the 13th five-year plan, besides trying to achieve the target set for the 12th five-year plan. Consequently, the transmission network will have to match the installed power generation capacity. But while there has been an increase in demand for Electrical Power Generation & Transmission, there exist a few hindrances, which include:
High cost to install new Power lines
Difficulty in acquiring Tower sites
Right of way (ROW)
Time involved in constructing new Power lines
