PM to lay foundation stone of NTPC plant in Telangana
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of NTPC's 1,600 MW Telangana Super Thermal Power Project (Phase I) in Ramagundam city of the state today. As for India's 29th state, NTPC is all set to establish the project in two phases -- 1600 MW (2x800MW) in Phase I and 2400 MW (3x800 MW) in Phase II. An investment approval of Rs 10,598.98 crore has been accorded for the project.
The Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act 2014 mandates that NTPC shall establish a 4000 MW power facility for the newly carved out state Telangana. As an interim arrangement till the development of this mine, tapering coal linkage for Telangana Phase-I (2X800 MW) shall be provided from Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), one of the eight subsidiary companies of Coal India Ltd (CIL) which is under administrative control of Ministry of Coal.
So let's discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the state where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone of NTPC plant?
2. The Western Coalfields limited (WCL) is a subsidiary of which company?
