In what threatens to be a major setback to power starved Bihar’s bid to become self-dependent for its Energy needs, National Thermal Power Corporation [ NTPC] is learned to be contemplating withdrawal from a joint venture project at Nabinagar in Aurangabad district.

NTPC, IN A JV with the Bihar government has floated the Nabinagar power Generating Company [NPGC] Private Ltd to execute a mega thermal power project at Nabinagar. However, it has not been able to start work on the project due to unrest over Land Acquisition. NTPC will say goodbye to the project if the required land is not made available to the executing agency within a week, a Union energy department official told on Monday.
