The man behind an electrifying challenge

India Investment Journal May Edition, Cover Feature
Piyush Goyal was among Mumbai’s most successful chartered accountants and merchant bankers when he gave up a flourishing professional career to become India’s power minister in May 2014. Actually he was appointed more than just power minister. As a 50-year-old who had never held ministerial office before, he was put in charge of an entire energy feedstock chain, with the Departments of Mines, Coal and Power under him, and with New and Renewable Energy as well. In previous times, these would have been run by four separate ministers.
