Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the launch of the residential rooftop solar scheme for free electricity, PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli Yojana.

The scheme offers a subsidy of INR 30,000/kW up to 2 kW, and INR 18,000/kW for additional capacity up to 3 kW. The total subsidy for systems larger than 3 kW has been capped at INR 78,000.
