( SHRI PIYUSH GOYAL )

(a) to (c) : Under the Bachat Lamp Yojana (BLY) programme, which was implemented by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), a statutory body under Ministry of Power, during the years 2010 to 2013, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) were provided to residential consumers at Rs. 15 per CFL, in exchange of an Incandescent Lamp (ICL). Under the BLY programme, about 215 lakh CFLs were distributed to approximately 88.9 lakh beneficiaries. 

State-wise CFL distribution to the beneficiaries, under the BLY programme, since its beginning, is furnished below:
