Background

The 660 MW plant is to be commissioned by CESC.[1][2] The company released an environmental impact assessment in 2013.[3]

As of April 2015 the project is not mentioned on Essar Energy's website list of upcoming projects, nor in its 2014 Annual Report, and appears to be deferred or abandoned.[5]
