Uttarakhand to pay Rs 75 cr to NHPC

01 Mar 2010

Power Ministry has asked the Uttarakhand Government to pay Rs 75 crore to NHPC to resume work on the 420 MW Lakhwar Vyasi multi purpose project on the Yamuna river. The move came despite the Uttarakhand Government’s objection that only Rs 43.184 crore had been authenticated by the NHPC. Uttarakhand Jal Vidyut Nigam Ltd (UJVNL), which was allotted the project in 2009, was ready to pay NHPC Rs 43.184 crore that had been authenticated by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) through its audited account.
