PM Surya Ghar Yojana Eligibility Criteria

पीएम सूर्य घर योजना के लिए अनिवार्य आवश्यकताएं

1. Solar Panel Must be DCR-Certified and ALMM-Listed

To be eligible for the PM Surya Ghar Yojana, your panels must be DCR-certified and the model must be listed in the ALMM. DCR and ALMM stand for ‘Domestic Content Requirement’ and ‘Approved List of Models and Manufacturers’.

The ALMM lists the types of solar panel models and their manufacturers which have been approved by the MNRE. You can find this ALMM module list on the portal of the MNRE.

To stay on the safe side, use Das Energie to get in touch with vendors who install DCR-certified solar panels for you. You can check the brand name, model number, type, etc., about the solar panel and other equipment on the quotation itself.
