Lack of electricity is one of the main constraints in the development of rural India where 57% of the Indian population resides. Long power cuts are a reality and it is important that the viable options are made available and address existing problems. Most of the rechargeable lights fail in the rural because they need 8-12 hours of charging at a constant current charge.

A study conducted by BPL in the rural areas shows that apart from farming and domestic chores, lack of electricity adversely affects children’s studies. To address the issue BTVL has launched a breakthrough innovation in rechargeable LED lighting technology – the “BPL Chirag”. BPL Chirag addresses this need by providing "5 hours of Light in 4 hours of Charging" under fluctuating voltage.
