Thus the organization of the power utility in the state began relatively recently and first electrical division was formed in August,1953 under the Public Works Department. Subsequently a department of M.P.P. & Power was formed in April, 1964 after realizing the need for exploiting the substantial hydel potential available in the river basins. Thereafter, the State Electricity Board in accordance with the provisions of Electricity Supply Act (1948) was formed in the year 1971. Accordingly , all functions of the Department of Multipurpose projects, Power such as generation, execution of hydro electric projects except functions of flood control and minor irrigation were transferred to the Board.
