Does anybody know where I can find a shapefile of the major components of the Indian electricity grid?

Ideally, I'd get transmission/other high-voltage lines, substations, generating units, and transformers. I know there are power maps out there (like this one), but I want to match these transmission lines up with geographical data, so more precise locations would be helpful.

    I somewhat doubt that information is readily available due to security issues. – user681 Aug 9 '14 at 20:18

OpenStreetmap seems to have some data:


You can get the full source data of India from Geofabrik , and filter for the items you are interested in.

But don't expect the data to be complete.
