    Thanking you for providing latest information. It is interesting to note that Government is stick to a total target of 100 GW and out which 40 GW has been allocated for rooftop solar. The allocation of rooftop solar targets to states is a positive sign for development of solar industry in India.

  2. These allocation looks good on paper but considering the state of rooftop installation environment in India, its a little difficult to see this happening. Couple of points which needs to be fixed before we can see up uptake in the rooftop segment are
    Net-Metering policy
    Cheaper sources of finance
    Local installer base
