  • Permit(s): August 3, 2012 – Environmental Clearance


  • Source of financing: China Development Bank


The proposed 1,320 MW power station received environmental clearance in 2012.[1]

In 2013 it was reported that infrastructure firm Lanco Infratech was putting construction of the power station on hold, due to "the turbulent economic environment, volatile currency and shortage of resources."[2]

The MOU for the project was extended for 18 months in December 2013. Lanco Group had also signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with China Development Bank to raise loans for the project.[3]

In November 2014 it was reported that Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission had cleared the project.[4]

The plant is not included in a March 2016 India government list of coal plants under construction.[5]

As of December 2016 the project is not listed on the company website or on the Ministry of Power's Broad Status Report. It appears to be shelved or abandoned.

In June 2017 the government of Uttar Pradesh cancelled the power purchase agreement (PPA) for the project, citing the company's failure of procure a fuel supply even after three deadline extensions.[6]
