Activities for Creating Energy Swaraj Movement

Energy Swaraj Yatra

The yatra is planned across the country starting from November 2020 until December 2030, nearly 11 years long, to create Energy Swaraj as a public movement.

Energy Literacy Training

    REC (Reduce Electricity Consumption)

    Join the "Shart Lagao Bijli Bachao Challenge!" by Energy Swaraj Foundation – a simple way for everyone to save electricity, the environment, and money. For three months, aim to reduce your electricity use and see the impact month by month, like comparing April 2023 with April 2022. 

    Your challenge is to beat your own record for three months this year compared to the same period last year, e.g., if you save in May, June, and July 2023, we'll compare it to the bills from May, June, and July 2022. Each unit of electricity saved equals 1 kg of CO2 emissions. Certificates and rewards await. Learn more at
