The dream for India's power sector started with a slogan: Power for all by 2012. Now it could just remain that – a dream. Delays in clearances have marred the government campaign. Now, the Chhattisgarh ultra mega power project (UMPP) may be scrapped if all the clearances are not in place by March next year.
NDTV has learnt that, government’s nodal agency for allocating ultra mega power projects, Power Finance Corporation, has extended the last day for bidding for Chhattisgarh UMPP for the sixth time. And now the new date for Request for qualification is March 5th next year.
