The Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) aims at development and deployment of solar energy technologies in the country to achieve parity with grid power tariff by 2022. The Mission adopted a 3-phase approach, spanning the period of the 11th Plan and first year of the 12th Plan (up to 2012-13) as Phase 1, the remaining 4 years of the 12th Plan (2013-17) as Phase 2 and the 13th Plan (2017-22) as Phase 3. The mission is aimed at developing 20-GW capacity solar grids and 2-GW capacity off-grid solar applications. The total expected investment for upgrading to 100 GW solar power capacity was around $94 billion.
