The Indian power generation sector has been developed with a mixed ownership by the central government, state government, independent power producers, and captive power plants. Having diversified motivation for ownership, the operating practices of these power plants are not always consistent, and often are not performed with the best possible effectiveness and efficiency. This is further affected by lack of experience; technical knowhow, lack in research facility which results in an increasing gap between well-performing units and less-developed ones.
