'Work to start on Adani's Jharkhand plant in June'
The Adani group will start work on its 1,600 MW ultra mega power project (UMPP) in the state in June, a top state official said.
The Gautam Adani-led conglomerate has committed Rs 20,000 crore in various projects, including the ultra mega plant at Godda, during the just-concluded Momentum Jharkhand investment summit.
"We have completed the land acquisition process for the Adani's ultra mega power project in the state and are in the process of distributing awards to landholders. They (Adani Power) will start work on the project in June this year," Jharkhand Chief Secretary Raj Bala Verma said.
The nearly Rs 10,000 crore ultra mega power project is part of over Rs 3 lakh crore investment commitments made during the summit last month.
He said about 1,000 acres of land have been acquired for the Adani Power project.
