REC Transmission Projects (RECTPL) has postponed the opening of financial bids for Vemagiri II and Alipurduar power transmission projects worth around Rs 8,100 crore, which may delay implementation of these power links. The Vemagiri II project will strengthen transmission system beyond Vemagiri and will be called Vemagiri II Transmission. It will traverse through Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Similarly, the Alipurduar project will strengthen transmission system in India for transfer of power from new hydro-electric projects in Bhutan. It will traverse through Bihar and West Bengal.
