Unnat Jeevan by Affordable LEDs and Appliances for All (UJALA) was launched by Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on 1 May 2015, replacing the "Bachat Lamp Yojana". Within 1 year of its launch, 9 crore LED bulbs were sold in the country, reducing their electricity bills by ₹55 billion (US$820 million).
The scheme was announced as "Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP)" on 5 January 2015, urging the people to use LED bulbs in place of incandescent bulbs, tube lights and CFL bulbs as they are more efficient, long lasting and economical in their life cycle duration.
The government's target is to replace 77 crore incandescent bulbs in India with LEDs by 2019 leading to an expected reduction in installed load of 20,000 MW with an annual estimated savings of over 100 million kwh and an annual reduction of ₹400 billion (US$5.9 billion) in electricity bills.
