New Delhi March 7: To save electricity and back municipalities for energy consumption, now 49 lakh LED lights are illuminating India's streets. Continuing the efforts, 1.3 Crores conventional street lights will be replaced with energy-efficient LED lights.

With the installation of Led lights, India will annually save energy around 900 Crores units and the total cost savings of municipalities every year will be around Rs 5,500 Crores.
