Background

Hindupur power station is a 1,320 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station which has been proposed by Sheshadri Power & Infrastructure to be built at Hindupur near Raichur, Mahaboobnagar, Telangana, India.[1] A Coal India document referred to the project as being proposed to be 1200MW comprising two 600MW units.[2]

While the company and the plant proposal date back to approximately 2008, little is known about the company or the proposal. The company does not have a website and a client listing of various coal and power companies by the consultancy company BARSYL lists Sheshadri Power & Infrastructure's email contact as being via a gmail account.[3]

The company has not applied for an environmental permit, and the project may have been abandoned.
