Tripping of the circuits of a 400-Kv Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) power line early this morning resulted in reduced power generation in the North Eastern Electric Power Corporation (NEEPCO) and Northeastern Hydroelectric Power Corporation

BHUBANESWAR: While the State is reeling under power crisis, the Government has not taken any proactive measures during the last 15 years to add hydro generation capacity despite huge potential.


With huge potential to generate power in the Northeastern region remaining untapped, the Government has earmarked an investment of over Rs 37,400 crore for setting up power projects to add 5,350 MW capacity by 2016, reports PTI. The Ministry of Power plans to add 5,350 MW power generation capacity in the Northeast, apart from the 3,926 MW which is under various stages of construction.

Demanding renegotiation of pacts with the National Hydro Project Corporation (NHPC),the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today observed that the scrapping of this agreement was important to make the state economically self-reliant.
