In mid-2010 it was reported that the UPPC was seeking bids to supply power to the grid from private investors. The Dopaha Thermal Power Plant was referred to as one of the projects which bids would be sought for on the basis that the Uttar Pradesh government would be responsible for providing the land, water and coal allocations and ensuring environmental and other approvals for.[1]

The proposed power station would comprise three supercritical 660MW generating units and require 1475 acres of land. It has been reported that the coal requirement for the project would be approximately 9.7 million tonnes per annum and require 60 cusecs of water. Terms of reference for an environmental impact assessment were issued on December 06, 2010.[2]
