THE INDIA POWER STORY

India Power Corporation Limited (IPCL), formerly known as DPSC Limited and incorporated in 1919, is one of the leading power-generation and utility companies in India. An ISO 9001:2015 entity, it has actively forayed into a diversified portfolio, with renewable and conventional modes of power generation, distribution & power trading.

Having a diversified portfolio of conventional and renewable modes of power generation, multi- location distribution, operation & maintenance and logistic outfits, it is our constant endeavor to grow the scale and scope of our operations in the energy sector. We are constantly seeking synergic opportunities in the power generation and distribution space to enhance our presence organically and inorganically.

As a Distribution Company, IPCL flies high in its licensed area of 618 sq km in the Asansol- Raniganj belt of West Bengal. The distribution network is overhead and the current T&D loss is below 3%, lower than the industry average of approximately 25%.

Another significant feather in IPCL’s cap was the successful connectivity to West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited through the commissioning of the 220 kV J.K. Nagar Substation. Purchasing of power is done daily through Indian Energy Exchange (IEX), which steadily reduces our cumulative power purchase cost.

In a first for an Indian distribution franchisee, India Power has entered into a partnership with the US Trade & Development Agency. Their agreement, announced during the US-India Strategic & Commercial Dialogue, will help implement Smart Gird Technology in India Power’s distribution network, boosting efficiency and reliability, while minimizing wastage. Technically, IPCL has hit several milestones in smart grid operations and smart meter incorporation. The smart grid, which uses information and communication technology to gather data about the behavior of suppliers and consumers to improve the efficiency of production and distribution, also allows us to identify and correct supply/demand imbalances instantaneously and detect faults through a self-healing process.

Adding Power to Life

They say “Social Work is the Art of Listening and the Science of Hope!

Social work grew out of humanitarian and democratic ideals, and its values are based on respect for equality, worth, and dignity of all people. Since its beginnings over a century ago, social work practice hasfocused on meeting basic human needs and developing human potential. Human rights and social justice serve as the motivation and justification for social work.

India Power, in solidarity with those who are disadvantaged, has been making efforts to relieve and prevent hardship and suffering of the society and its people at large. The primary objective of all our activities and efforts is to focus on problem-solving and bringing a fair change. With the motto of empowering the marginalized and the less fortunate, to build a better nation and to add value to society and its people, IPCL has plunged into Social Welfare activities, coming out of the limited radius of ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’.

This year, IPCL focused primarily on certain sections which need special attention from social workers, such as, Rural Development, Education, Health, Women’s Empowerment, Safe and Clean Drinking Water, Green Initiatives, Support to Senior Citizens, Recognition to Sports, Preserving the Nation’s Culture and Heritage, Extending help during Disasters and Crises, Skill Development Programs and Vocational Training.

Covering large swathes of  the Asansol-Ranigunj region and the Haldia hinterland, India Power undertook a clutch of initiatives for the uplift of the society and its people through activities like Vocational TailoringTraining for women, Training on Bangle-making (Lahati), organizing Women’s Soccer Tournament, distributing Woolen Garments and Blankets to the poor, donating water purifiers to communities and schools, organizing awareness programs on health, electricity theft, electricity conservation, etc. offeringscholarships, stationeries, computers to students and furniture to schools, donating auto-rickshaws andbuses for easy transportation of women and students. Besides, the company always proactively comesahead to help the society whenever there has been a situation of emergency such as natural calamities,demonetization, etc. IPCL has been also organizing Cleft Surgeries in association with Mission Smile,offering financial support to the Acid Survivors Foundation of India for the welfare of the acid-attackvictims, donating basic necessary items to the distressed and old widows and elderly people of old-age homes and many more social welfare activities.

Our environment is part of our society. Therefore, it is the duty of the citizens and responsible corporate entities to keep it clean and green. With this objective, IPCL has built toilets in the rural areas and tookinitiatives to clean up certain areas in its licensed areas.

It is often said that employees are a company’s best ambassadors and with this ideology, India Power always strives to support their employees in all possible aspects. From employees’ health to happiness, the entire company has been moving forward as a family. Responsibility towards society, homely atmosphere for the employees, a friendly work culture and approachable leaders make India Power a unique organization and one of the best places to work in.
