Scheme for Expansion of Renewable Energy

RAJYA  SABHA

            The Government has been providing several concessions in the form of fiscal and financial incentives to encourage the use of renewable energy sources. These include capital/interest subsidy, accelerated depreciation, nil/concessional excise and customs duties. Further, as applicable to all new infrastructure projects, profits earned from sale of renewable power are exempt from Income Tax for any 10 years out of the first 15 years of project’s operation. This apart, preferential tariff for grid interactive renewable power is being given in most potential States. Details of the Central Financial Assistance provided under various renewable energy schemes/ programmes are given in Annexure.
