Rubbishes reports of losing projects to China in the wake of current political developments

Undeterred by the fluid political developments in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, state-run NTPC said it was going ahead with its projects in those countries. The clarification came after a section of the media reported the company is losing projects to China. NTPC and the Sri Lankan team recently met in New Delhi to discuss changes to the power purchase agreement (PPA) and the implementation agreement for the 2x250 megawatt (Mw) imported coal-based power project at Sampur in Trincomalee district in Lanka.
