New transmission lines with private participation

The Empowered Committee of the Ministry of Power for deve­lop­ment of inter-state tran­smission lines has recomm­ended setting up of five new transmission lines with an estimated length of 2,600 km through tariff-bas­ed competi­tive bidding with private sector participation. These lines will help in eva­cuation of power from the pro­p­osed coa­stal gen­eration projects in Nagapattanam/Cuddalore are­as of Tamil Nadu and gas-based generation projects in Vemagiri/ Rajamundry areas in Andhra Pradesh will cost about Rs 6,485 crore. A number of transmissionprojects in diff­erent regions had earlier been awarded to successful private bidders.
