The Bihar government is working hard to provide electricity to everyone by 2015. Chief minister Nitish Kumar has already announced that he would not seek votes if his government failed to improve power scenario in the state, energy minister Bijendra Prasad Yadav told the state assembly on March 4. By 2015, Bihar will get 5,300 mw from various sources, which will be more than its consumption.
Replying to the debate on his department's budgetary demand of Rs 4350.65 crore, he said after mission 2015, the government has also set mission 2020 to receive over 16,000 mw power, including 4,000 mw from central sector. The house passed the demand after rejecting the cut motion of Jyoti Rashmi (independent) and others. The RJD members staged a walkout during the minister's reply.
Since power is in the concurrent list, the Minister stressed on importance of generation, transmission, distribution, connection and collection and said the state is constantly fighting with the Centre for its rights but the latter's attitude was apathetic.
He also referred to the all-party delegation led by Nitish that met the prime minister over a year ago for coal linkage to the thermal power plants. He said the state was getting only 1,100 mw per day from central sector against the allocation of 1,834 mw and it was purchasing 200 mw from open market.
Yadav said a new thermal power station of 1,980 mw is being set up with a cost of Rs 15,132 crore at Nabinagar under the joint venture of Bihar State Power (Holding) Company Limited and NTPC. The power generation will start in 2016-17 and Bihar will get 1,373.50 mw electricity.
From its stage-II, the state will receive 75% of the 1980MW. An agreement with Essar Power and GMR Kamalanga Energy has been inked under which the state will purchase 750 mw and 260 mw, respectively, which will be supplied by the end of 2015. Bihar will get 85 per cent power from the proposed 1,320 mw Greenfield power station at Chausa, he said.
