Centre proposes 4,000 MW NTPC plant for Telangana | Business Line:

To address power shortage in the Telangana region after the division of Andhra Pradesh, the Centre has proposed setting up a 4000 MW mega power project by NTPC.
The company will take up development of the plant once it secures coal linkages. The coal requirement could be met by the State-owned Singareni Collieries and other sources.
After the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Seemandhra, the Telangana region is likely to be short by about 2,000 MW.
While efforts would be made to bridge the gap through Central power stations and purchases, setting up of a mega power plant would be a long-term solution.
NTPC has a super thermal power project in Ramagundam.
It is exploring the possibility of expansion at the site. During a recent interaction, the NTPC management had indicated at the move to expand and also consider purchase of power assets.
In its efforts to boost the infrastructure in both the regions, the Centre has proposed several projects, including setting up a major port at Duggirajapatnam and conducting feasibility studies for a steel plant by Steel Authority of India in Telangana and another steel plant in Kadapa.
It has proposed that Indian Oil and and Hindustan Petroleum explore the possibility of setting up a petrochemical complex. The existing airports at Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada and Tirupathi could be improved.
Feasibility study
While taking up a feasibility study for developing the Vizag-Chennai industrial corridor, it was proposed that the National Highways Authority of India would develop roads, while the Indian Railways would build a rail coach factory in Telangana.
The Government will also explore the feasibility of metro rail projects in Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada- Guntur- Tenali.
