These associations represent 35 districts of Maharashtra, especially regions as Marathwada, Vidarbh-1, Western Maharashtra, Central Maharashtra, North Maharashtra, Vidarbh-2, Konkan, and Mumbai.
Each member association appoints council members on the Federation in proportion with its member strength. These council members elect Federation President, Vice President, Secretary, Joint Secretary, Treasurer, and Managing Committee Members for the duration of two years.
According to provisions in Electricity Act 2003 of Government of India and Electricity Acts of Government of Maharashtra, Electrical Contractors' License is issued to person qualifying norms by Industry, Energy, & Labour ministries of Government of Maharashtra. It is mandatory to source all kinds of electrical works to licensed electrical contractors only.
