  1. By supporting 4200 MW rooftop solar in next 5 years by providing subsidies amounting to 5000 crores, how the government plans to achieve target of 40000 rooftop solar by 2022.
    Would it not be better to make it mandatory for each industrial commercial and large domestic consumer to install to get at least 10% of its energy requirement from solar, provide financial assistance at lower interest rates, and limit subsidies to only small domestic poor consumers and villages having no access to grid power
