The state government, which is contemplating to offload 74 per cent stake in Odisha Thermal Power Corporation Ltd (OTPCL), a 50:50 joint venture between Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC) and Odisha Hydro Power Corporation (OHPC), is keen to emulate the steps of Chhattisgarh to go about it.

The Chhattisgarh government recently selected India Bulls and Indian Farmers Fertilizers Cooperative Ltd (Iffco) as strategic partners for its two different power projects.
