Delhi Transco Limited, a successor company of erstwhile Delhi Vidyut Board, came into existence on 1st July 2002, as a State Transmission Utility of the National Capital. After unbundling of DVB the distribution sector has been handed over to private companies while the generation and transmission are still with the government. Over the years, DTL has evolved as a most dynamic performer, keeping pace with the manifold challenges that confront the ever increasing demand-supply power situation and achieving functional superiority on all fronts.
