The hundreds of millions of people in India live in villages in abysmal condition without basic amenities like electricity, sanitation facility, drinking water and cooking gas. According to the Census of India Report 2011: 64 percent of rural population of our country uses firewood, 13 percent crop residue and 12.8 percent use cow dung for cooking and 56 percent of our rural population uses kerosene for lighting.
