GoyalOn the occasion of completing two years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's reign in India, the Centre has decided to appreciate the power sector. According to  Minister of state for power, coal, new and renewable energy, Piyush Goyal will distribute wooden-framed 'appreciation letters' to one million employees under the power, coal and new and renewable energy ministries.

The ministry wants to thank the government employees for their contribution in achieving goals set by PM Modi two years ago.

According to the report, every letter will be of 8.5x14 size and will be accompanied by a list of achievements made in the past two years.

The letter mentions the progress made in different government programmes ranging from rural electrification to adding solar power capacity and revival of power distribution companies.

"Each and every one of you put in your heart and soul, committing yourself to the mission. And today after two years of your dedicated hard work, I can say with great confidence and pride that we are steadily and systematically transforming the seemingly impossible into the possible. With your achievements, I can even venture to suggest that we may accomplish the goal by 2019," said the letter reviewed by Business Standard.

All this is aimed at achieving PM's target of '24X7 Power for All by 2022', says the letter dated April 14.

The minister's office has been mandated to take up the dispatch of letter as "most urgent matter" with a deadline of May 10, 2016.
