      <Abstract>In this paper, we studied the scenario of distribution losses in Haryana due to electricity theft. The electricity board in the state of Haryana is facing financial losses owing to these distribution losses and the main reason for this is the non-technical losses. Distribution losses account for the mismatch between the billed electricity units and supplied units. The major factors which are responsible for distribution losses are system inefficiency, tampering with energy meter, hiding actual installed load, malpractice of electricity theft etc. Social and economic factors like literacy, income, lack of information etc. also affected the distribution losses in Haryana, a rural dominated Indian State. Haryana is an Indian State in which 65.21% of total population lives in the rural areas. In this paper, we analyse the distribution losses based on the data obtained from the distribution company in the northern areas of State (i.e., Uttar Haryana BijliVitran Nigam Ltd.). For indicative analysis, we have chosen Kharkhoda block of Haryana State as the sample area for study of the distribution losses based on the data provided by UHBVNL.</Abstract>
