Need for PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli Scheme

India meets a sizable portion of its energy needs through coal-fired electricity, and this solar rooftop programme could be seen as an avenue to reduce the dependence of conventional sources of power.
At COP26 held in 2021, India committed to an ambitious five-part "Panchamrit" pledge. They included reaching 500 GW of non-fossil electricity capacity, generating half of all energy requirements from renewables, to reducing emissions by 1 billion tonnes by 2030. India as a whole also aims to reduce the emissions intensity of GDP by 45 per cent. Finally, India commits to net-zero emissions by 2070.

About 44% of India's energy requirements at present come from non-fossil sources and are likely to touch as high as 65% by 2030, much higher than what the country pledged at the COP summit in 2021, So, to ensure that energy requirements are met through solar power generation, the central govt. has launched PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli Yojana which will benefit India in long run.
