Aim of UJALA Scheme

The UJALA Scheme is considered to be the world’s largest program where the aim is to promote efficient use of energy.

It comes under the Domestic efficient lighting programme (DELP) that focuses on consumption, lighting and savings.

To the customer who satisfies the criteria gets the LED bulbs under subsidized rates from the electricity distribution company.

It makes residential level users to know about the LED bulbs and their efficacy so that people prefer LEDs.

Why LED Bulbs

An LED lightbulb is a type of compact fluorescent lightbulb that uses LEDs (light emitting diodes), rather than traditional filaments, to produce light.

These bulbs are much brighter than CFLs, and last longer too. They’re also safer, since they contain fewer toxic chemicals.

They’re also energy efficient, meaning that they consume far less electricity than incandescent lights.

LED bulbs also have life of 4 to 5 years and if there’s any defect EESL provides replacement of LED bulb.

Benefits of LED bulb

LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular due to its many advantages. LED bulbs last much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, saving consumers money in the process.

They also save energy, reducing carbon emissions and lowering utility bills. And finally, they look great! There are many different styles available, so you can easily find something that fits your home decor.

LED bulbs are becoming increasingly popular due to their many advantages. One of these advantages is that they save money on electricity costs.

LEDs use less energy than incandescent bulbs, and this means you can save a lot of money in the long run.

This is because LEDs last longer than traditional light bulbs, which means you don’t have to replace them as often.

LED bulbs also produce very little heat, so there is no need for an additional heating element.

The best part about LED bulbs is that they are extremely bright. You will notice that your room looks brighter when you switch from regular bulbs to LED ones.

This makes installation easier and faster. Also, since LED bulbs are more efficient, you won’t need to pay as much for electricity.


UJALA has been a massive success which helped save energy consumption.

Crores of LEDs have been distributed across the country thanks to UJALA scheme.

Many households have saved annual electricity bills from this scheme.
