The power station was proposed by Dhariwal Infrastructure, a subsidiary of CESC.

According to February 2014 report of the Ministry of Electricity, Unit 1 was commissioned in November 2013.[2] Unit 2 was commissioned in August 2014.[3] Each of the two units had a capacity of 300 MW.[4]


In December 2011, a financing agreement for the project was closed. US$468.18 million in loans will be provided by ICICI Bank, Bank of Baroda, IDBI Bank, Infrastructure Development Finance Company, Uco Bank, and Axis Bank. US$156.06 million in equity will be provided by Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation.[5]


According to reporting from March 2024, Dhariwal Infrastructure had donated 1.1 billion rupees (US$21.2 million) to Indian political parties. The company owns the Dhariwal power station, which had been investigated by the Joint Secretary for allegedly releasing large amounts of fly ash that damaged crops in surrounding villages. Dhariwal Infrastructure was asked to pay 6.2 million rupees (US$74,000) in compensation to affected farmers, but as of March 2024, the company had not yet paid any compensation.[6]
