160 power projects to generate 46,948 MW electricity: Tuki
Arunachal Pradesh has signed pacts with power developers to execute 160 projects, entailing total installed capacity of 46,948 MW, in the state.
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki informed on Monday that the state government has inked memorandum of understandings (MoUs) and memorandum of agreements (MoAs) with power developers to execute these projects. Responding to a question from opposition leader Tamiyo Taga during question hour, Tuki disclosed that three projects -- 2000 MW Lower Subansiri Hydro Electric Project (LSHEP), 600 MW Kameng project and 110 MW Pare project -- are under execution. When Taga wanted to know the steps taken by the state to identify the developers who were not interested in executing projects despite signing the MoUs/MoAs, Tuki said that the government had already taken decision and cancelled contracts with a few developers for violating the agreements.
