The privatization of Delhiís power sector in 2002 and the unbundling of the Delhi Vidyut Board the same year led to the business power distribution to BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) and BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL). And there is another called North Delhi Power Limited under TATA that is NDPL. Among the three the two sections of BSES offer electricity distribution to nearly 22.6 lakhs of customers which is almost two third of delhiís population. And the BSES Company has acquired liabilities, assets, proceedings and personnel of the Delhi Vidyut Board according to the terms and conditions that are contained in the Transfer Scheme.
