This thread describes the progress of Indian electrification coverage. Two charts are presented, both sourcing data from EIA.

First chart:

1. By the start of the century China had already almost finished full electrification. India had 60% without electricity.
2. Big drop 2000-04, from 600m to 500m
3. Shallow drop 2004-14 from 500m to 350m
4. Big drop 2014-18 from 350m to 50m

1. slope of electrification rate from 2000-04 and since 2014 exceeds peak rate of electrification in China
2. 2017 was start of Saubhagya mission.
3. By 2019, India achieves near complete electrification (next graph)

Latest data for 2019 from EIA:

100m from 2000-04 = 25m per year
150m from 2004-14 = 15m per year
350m from 2014-19 = 70m per year

The 2004-14 slope if extrapolated, would yield full electrification in 2040. Instead, it is already accomplished as of 2019.

There's a lot of talk about India and climate change goals. Particularly, it is argued that the Indian government lacks commitment. This thread is intended to offer an overview of current status. It will be data focused.
The most recent epoch of data is the annual climate transparency report:…
All major nations are rated by their ongoing progress against Paris Agreement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC 2015) towards their 2030 target goals.
Page 23 is of particular interest. All major nations listed with status:
USA: critically insufficient
China: highly insufficient
Japan: highly insufficient
EU: insufficient
Germany: insufficient
France: insufficient
Australia: insufficient
Canada: insufficient
