Power Distribution Franchisee – evolving Public Private Partnership (PPP) model has picked traction since 2009 after successful demonstration by Torrent Power Ltd. at Bhiwandi, Maharashtra, which got operational in 2007.
The licensee (state utility) appoints a private company on the basis of rationale bidding for distribution of electricity in a specified area for specified years of contract. This Distribution Franchisee model stands midway between licensee and full PPP model and is considered as one of the major energy reforms in power distribution sector that has the potential to turnaround the sector and take electricity to rural areas as well.

Three new cities in MP have recently been franchised and undergoing handover, further boosting up the DF model. Input based Distribution Franchisee, by far, has been mostly used operating model in urban areas.
