The central government is preparing to replace all the normal bulbs with LED bulbs in the coming few years. Since the arrival of the Modi government at the Center, work is being done in this direction at a very fast pace. Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Saturday that the government plans that we will replace the normal bulb with LED bulb in a few years. Javadekar said this while participating in the business conclave of the prestigious Shri Ram College of Commerce through video conferencing.
Tourism Minister Prakash Javadekar was speaking on climate change and other issues related to environment. He said that since the coming of the Modi government at the Center, work started to be done to reduce carbon emission. Talking about the work done on the LED bulb, he said that we talked to all the LED manufacturers and bargained fiercely about the price. You know how expensive LED bulb was before. But today the prices have reached up to 70 rupees due to the efforts of the government.
He said that more than 2 billion bulbs have changed in the last 6 years. This has helped in reducing the carbon emission as well as saving electricity. The government has also benefited from this along with the common man. Javadekar said that revolution has come in this direction in a few years and we are still continuing our work. He also talked about focusing on solar energy.

Use of LED bulbs has increased
This step of the government has also affected the common people. Until a few years ago there were 100 watt bulbs in our houses. Due to the high price, only a few LED bulbs used to be used in people, but today the situation is completely different. Now even the common man uses LED bulbs. In such a situation, it is important to know why the government is putting so much emphasis on the use of LED bulbs.
What are the advantages of LED bulb?
We all know that LED bulb saves electricity and we take advantage of this by paying less electricity bill. Apart from this, it has a longer life than traditional bulbs and it is worth using for a long time. The traditional ball had to be changed again and again. Also the LED bulb causes less harm to the environment. In 2017, the Department of Energy had said that if LED lights would start being used in the entire country, then we would be able to save huge amount of electricity. LED bulbs give more light than normal bulbs. They are also environmentally friendly.
