120 transmission projects face roadblocks

Problems in acquiring land and forest clear­ance delays have grounded at least 120 power transmission projects according to CEA sources. Most of these projects belong to the Power Grid Corporation and state utilities. Many com­panies would like transmission projects to be exe­mpted from some provisions of the Forest Rights Act of 2006.

Some projects that could take a hit due to delay in associated transmission lines are Tata Power's 4,000 MW Mundra ultra mega power project, Reliance Power's 4,000 MW Krishnapatnam project, NTPC's 1,000MW Simhadri expansion project, ONGC's 700 MW Palatana gasbased project and Damodar Valley Corporation's 1,000 MW Durgapur and Raghunathpur projects.
