Background on Plant

The proposed 1,320 MW power station received environmental clearance in 2012.[1]

In 2013 it was reported that infrastructure firm Lanco Infratech was putting construction of the power station on hold, due to "the turbulent economic environment, volatile currency and shortage of resources."[2]

The MOU for the project was extended for 18 months in December 2013. Lanco Group had also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with China Development Bank to raise loans for the project.[3]

In November 2014 it was reported that Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission had cleared the project.[4]
