Reliance's Sasan project faces green hurdles
Reliance Power's Sasan Power, which is implementing Rs 9,805 crore- 6x660 mw Sasan Ultra Mega Power Plant (UMPP) has approached Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) seeking clearance for the expansion of the project by 3X660 mw. However, MoEF has sought additional information from the company stating the proposal in the current form is pre-mature.
The power producer is busy preparing documents that are necessary for clearance. Whatever information has been sought by the Ministry will be provided in November so that the project may be cleared in the subsequent meeting, sources in the company told a leading news agency.
