Ashok Gehlot took this big step to make Rajasthan self-sufficient in the power generation sector
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has taken a big step to make Rajasthan self-reliant in the power generation sector. In this regard, he has given information through social media. He tweeted that Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam has approved the proposals of setting up two units of 660-660 MW capacity in thermal power project based on ultra-supercritical technology at Chhabra and one ultra-supercritical thermal power project of 800 MW capacity in Kalisindh.
With this approval, 2 ultra-supercritical technology-based units of 660-660 MW capacity will be set up by expanding Chhabra Thermal Power Project at a cost of Rs.9606.06 crore. Along with this, 1 ultra-supercritical technology-based unit of 800 MW capacity will be set up at a cost of Rs 6054.58 crore while expanding the Kali Sindh Thermal Power Project.
The Rajasthan government not only wants to make the state self-reliant in the power generation sector but is trying to make it a power surplus. With this view, in the direction of increasing power generation in the state, with the establishment of power projects of a total 2120 MW capacity in Chhabra, Kalisindh, the state will move rapidly towards self-reliance in the power generation sector. Local area development and employment will increase.
It is noteworthy that in the budget 2022-23, an announcement was made for the establishment of ultra-supercritical technology-based thermal power projects in thermal power plants of Utpadan Nigam, important from the point of view of saving coal, reducing pollution, and environmental protection.
