The proposed power station has been referred to as being a 1,320 MW in some reports[1] and one Lanco affiliate's website.[2] In a later report it has been referred to as a 2,640 megawatt plant.[3]

A November 2010 news report stated that Lanco has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Uttar Pradesh government for a 1,320 MW project to be completed in five years.[1] Another news report from November 2011 stated that the plant would be commissioned within four years.[3] However, in a February 2012 investor presentation Lanco does not include the project in its projected additional capacity through 2015.[4]

The Uttar Pradesh cabinet granted an 18 month extension to the project in December 2013.[5]
