Bachat Lamp Yojana process/ Source: Bureau of Energy Efficiency
The Bachat Lamp Yojana is a scheme developed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency that replaces incandescent bulbs with Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) to avoid carbon dioxide emissions, overheating and overconsumption of electricity in households.

The Bachat Lamp Yojana envisages the provision of Compact Flourescent Lamps (CFLs) to residential households at the same cost as that of an incandescent lamp (ICL). To make the CFL available at a cost equivalent to ICL, the funds from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) are leveraged. Once the CFLs have reached their end of life, suppliers arrange for the collection and scrapping of CFLs in an environment friendly manner. The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) coordinates the implementation of the Bachat Lamp Yojana in various states by supporting CFL manufacturers, traders and investors and through collaboration with Electricity Distribution Companies (DISCOMs). It also takes on the responsibility of providing monitoring services through 2012. CFL use is monitored in groups of sample households in selected areas to provide data on usage and to verify carbon dioxide emission reductions under the CDM project.
