For over five decades, the Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) has been a vital force in India's electrification journey. Established in 1969 to support rural development through electrification, REC has made significant strides in the power sector. It set up a national training institute in 1979, became a Public Financial Company in 1992, and received Mini Ratna status in 2002. The company's achievements culminated in 2008 when it was listed on the stock exchange, with a 27 times subscription rate reflecting investor confidence.
