The project for electrification of the islands will be inaugurated by honorable Chief Minister Devendra Fadnvis and renowned social worker Appasaheb Dharmadhikari. After many futile attempts by the previous Congress-NCP Government, the island will finally get unhindered electric supply after decades.

The Navy have also been requesting the State Govt. for the electrification of the island as it would prove helpful for guarding the Bhaba Atomic Research Center opposite the Elephanta. All these years, the island used to receive only 3 hours electricity per day which was provided by electric generators.
