Its a massive project but a lot cobwebs exist - its a huge friggin' behemoth and am tempted to add it...what say you all?

NVM Found this!! The Reliance Dadri project has been bumped up to 7480 MW !!!

Reliance Power applies to Power Ministry for gas allocation

MUMBAI: Anil Ambani owned Reliance Power's projects are getting a fresh lease of life and this time from the Ministry of Power . The government is inviting fresh applications this month for power plants which will get special recommendation by the Power Ministry for gas allocation in the 12th Five Year Plan. Reliance Power has applied for gas allocation for two of its biggest power projects in Dadri and Jambusar.

“We have already got applications for 120 power projects. After processing the applications, the Power Ministry will recommend these power plants for gas allocation to the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas,” a top Central Electricity Authority (CEA) official told ET Now asking not to be quoted.

The criteria for selection of the power projects will be based on the following - 30 per cent weightage to land availability, 20 per cent to projects located in states facing acute coal shortage, 20 per cent to projects using sea water instead of fresh water, 20 per cent to efficiency of the plant and 10 per cent to environmental clearance.

According to CEA documents, Reliance Power’s Dadri plant of 7480 MW capacity already has land available. The company’s 7200 MW Jambusar plant has already been allotted 1900 acres land and transfer of land is in progress. The Jambusar plant will also use sea water for its operation. The two plants have massive gas requirement. Dadri has requested 35.90 mmscmd and Jambusar 34.56 mmscmd of gas.

Reliance Power stock soared 8.89 per cent to Rs 188.69 on the Bombay Stock Exchange on Thursday. If Reliance Power is selected by Power Ministry for recommendation to the Petroleum ministry then it will get a priority in gas allocation.

This could be a huge advantage for Reliance Power which needs gas to begin raising funds for its Dadri plant which had been stuck due to litigation. Anil Dhirubhai Ambani group’s (ADAG) Reliance Natural Resources had been fighting a legal battle with brother Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries for gas allocation.

The Supreme Court delivered its verdict in this landmark case on May 7 this year after which the two companies signed a Gas Sale Master Agreement on 25 June 2010. RIL announcement had said “The agreement will be subject to government’s gas utilization policy and Empowered Group of Ministers (EGOM) decision.”

EGOM is currently discussing gas allocation for power projects until 2012 which includes ADAG’s 2,400 MW Samalkot expansion project in Andhra Pradesh. Simultaneously, Power Ministry is also preparing a policy for gas allocation to power projects in the 12th Plan.

Other companies which have also applied for getting Power Ministry’s recommendations include NTPC, Tata Power, JSW Energy , GMR Infra and Lanco Infratech. The application deadline is November 20.

dadri plant was always 7480 MW but was reduced to 5500 MW due to gas problems.. and after KG gas matter was solved it was again increased to 7480 MW

but i doubt that it is U/C because it is not in the projects at the site of reliance power as well as reliance infra...

and yes it is different from the dadri NTPC which is i think of 1980 MW(not sure though)

Ok - I'll keep it on until we hear the word "scrapped". I'm optimistic since its usually a sign of successful execution when a project is situated in a zone/corridor/city/town that already has another project successfully implemented. The locals aren't that unaware of the pros and cons and land acquisition, which should be a big issue for "virgin" territories shouldn't be an issue the second time around...

Still - almost 23000 MW for UP. Who'd have though ten years ago UP - which was literally powerless -would be aiming to become power surplus? Mayawati seems to be doing a marvellous job - at least where electricity is concerned..

Talks on with NTPC for setting up of 2,000 mw unit in Bilhaur

LUCKNOW: If talks materialise, the state might have another power generation unit in Bilhaur area. The unit will have a capacity of at least 2,000 megawatts that may amply contribute in improving the power scenario of Uttar Pradesh.

Talks to this effect took place between officials from UP Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) and their counterparts in the National Thermal Power Corporation ( NTPC). Though the two parties have not come to a conclusion, UPPCL chief Navneet Seghal has offered that if NTPC allocates 70% of the power generated from the unit to UP, there may be a deal.

Sehgal also reviewed the progress of various projects undertaken by the corporation to strengthen the transmission network in the state. Directing officials, he said that in order to eliminate overloading, a robust infrastructure was needed. Thus, the work must be taken up on war-footing.

I remember, around 15 years ago - we used to go to Meerut, Lucknow and Muzzafarnagar - and the people there used witness 10-12 hours of power cuts (lesser in Lucknow but still) - every fifteen twenty minutes!! watching Cricket was the most frustrating experience ever....
Those days - people used to laugh when people suggested that the govt should construct power plants. it was an IMPOSSIBILITY !! No scope of further discussion. Summers were a misery!! How much has changed...

Done. I had those sugar mills plants in my list earlier. I know for a fact that those plans are strictly on experimental turf (one of my relatives owns a mill that's vying for its own captive plant) - the government is talking about them - but is not ready to supply evacuation infrastructure. It probably means these plants will scale down the capacity to 5-10 MW for its own limited consumption.

And the hits just KEEP ON COMING!! Guess soon as I get some more info on the extension - I'll bump up the Bajaj Hindustan portfolio!!!

Quote:
A meeting of the energy task force here on Friday decided to grant approval to sugar major Bajaj Hindusthan to set up a 1,980-mw power plant in Bargad and also allow it to set up an extension at the Lalitpur power plant. It may be recalled that the state government had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Bajaj Hindusthan group in April this year, in which the group was to set up a 1,980-mw capacity plant in Lalitpur district of Bundelkhand.

Along with the extension, the project will be of almost 4,000 mw capacity, very close to the figure that was originally sought to be set up by the NTPC at the behest of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

With this, Bundelkhand will now have two powerhouses, Bargad (1,980 mw) and another in Lalitpur (3,960 mw).

UP plans megapolis along Yamuna Expressway

In an out of-the-box way of policy-making which creates an urban zone 10 times the size of Noida, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to convert the entire rural belt along the Greater Noida-Agra expressway into an urban zone, making it the biggest such plan attempted in India. The Mayawati government issued a notification on Monday bringing 1,187 villages spanning six districts along the Yamuna Expressway under the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority, cutting short a process that would otherwise have taken years.
In terms of size, this will be bigger than Greater Noida or Delhi, its nearest competitors. The decision is expected to prevent the haphazard growth of urban sprawls on the flanks of new highways. The state government has decided to notify an area of 10-15 km on the left of the almost-finished Yamuna Expressway and up to the river Yamuna on the right side, for “organised and well planned development”.

Uttar Pradesh principal secretary (industrial development) VN Garg told FE that this is one of the most ambitious efforts of the state government in transforming a rural area into an urban one, which will also serve as a corridor for industrial and infrastructural development. “At present, it is a transitional phase and the evolution from rural to urban will take time, but we see immense scope of growth in this area. In fact, some of the work has already started. The construction of Agra Ring Road is in progress, the Formula One racing track is getting ready for 2011 championship, plans for developing five townships along the Expressway are in progress and a lot of urban development work is being carried out by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority, including the setting up of a gas-based power plant. Such large-scale activities take their time, but progress has been steady,” he said.

Mayawati’s plan ensures a far higher rate of compensation to farmers for their land, as these will now be classified as urban areas. An integrated development plan will also offer industry the chance to make a long-term assessment of the potential of the entire stretch and the state government assured of rising revenues for a long time, as the area turns into either a complex of small bustling industrial cities or one large metropolis.

The plan will cover approximately 2,36,682 hectares in 1187 villages, (131 in Gautam Budh Nagar, 40 in Bulanshahr, 105 in Aligarh, 420 in Maha Maya Nagar, 431 in Mathura and 60 in Agra).

The infrastructure building along the expressway may also trigger further private development and buttress the state government’s plans to set up an international airport at Jewar.

“This is perhaps one of the most imaginative projects to come up in the country. What’s more important, at one go, the specifics of an area of 2,36,682 hectares with a population of about 20,96,860 will be changed. If everything goes according to plan, the future is mind-boggling and the result worth watching over a period of time,” said another official associated with the project. He said this project is almost 10 times bigger than Noida.

However, putting to rest fears that farmers will have to forgo their land for this ambitious project, Garg completely ruled out the acquisition of land in this notified area and said that the purpose is to have a “planned development for industrial and infrastructure purposes and farmers need not be apprehensive about their land. On the contrary, such development will add value to their land,” he stated.

However, there are detractors who have already started voicing concerns over such a vast tract of rural, agrarian land turning urban as also of an urban, industrial area which is yet to have any of the urban facilities. There are also concerns of the rural economy being shattered and food security. But for all this, the state government’s only response is that urbanisation is the only way to the future. “With a growing population, transition from rural to urban is the only way forward and what we are aiming is to do so in an organised, planned manner, with phased activities,” added Garg.

Ganj makeover will complete before new year: SAC chief

LUCKNOW: BSP national general secretary and chairman of State Advisory Council (SAC), Satish Chandra Mishra on Sunday reiterated that the civic authorities were committed to get the renovation of Hazratganj completed before the new year. Mishra, who was inspecting the ongoing civil works in the locality, promised that the renovated Hazratganj would be dedicated to the public as soon as possible.

He, however, said that it was up to the traders as to how soon they complete renovation of the buildings. Mishra's projection comes in the wake of the traders fixing December 26 as the date for holding grand celebrations in the wake of the UP market completing 200 years of existence.

Notably, Mishra had flagged off the renovation in July after consistent efforts of traders to convince the state government about the importance of the market bore fruit.

Earlier in the day, traffic through the market was put under restriction even as the civic works went full steam. It was around 11am that the BSP leader visited the market with a host of senior administrative officials. The officials visited various parts of the market and took stock of the ongoing civil works.

The officials also interacted with the traders and asked them to get their share of work completed in time.

Traders were under pressure of getting the buildings renovated while the civil works are carried on. But the renovation work was hampered after the road was dug up, first for constructing a storm water drain and then for trenches on both the sides. It was only after a significant stretch of the road along the market was covered up, that renovation of buildings started.

She's surely turning my homestate from the shithole that it was to the almost respectable entity its becoming. UP still has a looooooong way to go - but such progress was unheard of a decade ago....
