The history of power developemnt in Rajasthan goes back to the year 1949,when 19 princely states merged to form Rajasthan.At that time,electric power,was confined to very few towns,and electricity was considered a luxury.The total number of towns and villages electrified at that time,did not exceed 42 and the installed gererating capacity was only 13.27 MW.However,with the formation of Rajasthan State Electricity Board on 1st july 1957,power sector in Rajasthan received priority and power projects began to mushroom all over State.
Under new Power Reforms Undertaken by State Govt. RESB was unbundled into following five Govt. Companies in July 2000.

Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (RVUN)

Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited (RVUN) has been entrusted with the job of development of power projects under state sector, in the state along with operation & maintenance of state owned power stations. Government of Rajasthan constituted the Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Ltd. (RVUN) under Companies Act-1956 on 19th July, 2000. The Nigam is since playing lead role in giving highest priority to the power generation for manifold and rapid development of the state.
