Total electrificationKerala, known for its high social development, has become the first state to provide electricity to every household. Marking Left Democratic Front government's first anniversary, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan made the formal declaration at an event.

After coming to power last year in May, the state government is running a campaign to provide electricity in each and every household in the state. Barring 1,000 families, who reside in the forest areas with regulations, all the household have been electrified.

However, steps have been taken to light up these areas as well.

As per the central government criterion, a village is called "electrified" if it successfully provides electricity to 10% households.

It is interesting to note that way back in 1970, Haryana government claimed that it was the first state in the country to have achieved hundred percent rural electrification in rural areas.
