Power Sector Updates


Addition to Power Generation during April-Sep FY15-16: 6,602 MW

Total Addition till Sep 2015 during 12th plan: 67,616 MW (Achievement of 76% against 12th Plan Target)

Total installed Capacity at the end of September 2015: 2,78,734 MW


Addition in ‘CKM’ during 12th Plan Up to September 2015


Addition in MVA/ MW during 12th Plan Up to September 2015

Sub-Station completion is better of than Transmission Lines. In remaining 2 years of 12th plan, focus will be on completion of 765 kV & 800 kV HVDC Transmission Lines & Sub-Stations.
