Electricity as a subject is in the concurrent list of constitution of India. It means that both the Union and the State Governments can formulate policies and laws on the subject but the responsibility of implementation rests with the states. Distribution of electricity in particular comes in the domain of the states.

In India, Legal provisions to support and regulate the sector were put in place through the Indian Electricity Act, 1910. Shortly after independence, a second Act - The Electricity (Supply) Act, 1948 was formulated, paving the way for establishing Electricity Boards in the states of the Union. The third act in place was Electricity Regulatory Commission Act, 1998 which had established the regulatory commissions which continued under the new act called Electricity Act 2003.
