Hydro projects of 10,500 MW stalled by local agitation

Over 30 hydro power projects of 10,500 MW envisaged capacity have been stalled due to protests by locals fearing dislocation, environmental damage and lack of funds. According to a statement by SD Dubey, Chairman, CEA, these projects have not been scrapped and are still a priority for the government. He said that they will look for ways to bring the plans to fruition adding that the Centre is working with local authorities to persuade citizens. On the development side too, the government is trying to solve issues faced by developers to address the financial crunch, Dubey said while trying to assuage doubts. Some of the stalled projects are the 1,200 MW Teesta III project in West Bengal, the 1,000 MW Naba project in Arunachal Pradesh, the 815 MW Tamak Lata project in Uttarakhand and the 800 MW Niare project in Arunachal.
