NTPC mulls Rs 202 bn investment in 2013-14

State-run power producer NTPC plans to invest Rs 20,200 crore during 2013-14 compared to Rs 20,995 crore in the previous year, documents related to union budget 2013-14 shows.

NTPC would fund the investment through internal accruals. The firm, which has installed capacity of about 40,000 mw, plans to raise it to about 70,000 mw by March, 2017.

Meanwhile, the company plans to invest Rs 1,314.57 crore on the 7 mn tpa (million tonne per annum) Chatti-Bariatu coal mining project in Jharkhand, for which the Board of Directors accorded approval.

The document also shows that NTPC may be compensated for the cancellation of a 600-mw Loharinag Pala hydel project on Bhagirathi river in Uttarakhand. In 2010, a Group of Ministers (GoM) cancelled the controversial hydel project.

According to the recommendation of the government and claim settlement committee, a provision has been kept for compensating NTPC towards reimbursement for construction of the Loharinag Pala project due to closure.

The authorised share capital of the company stood at Rs 10,000 crore and paid up capital at Rs 8,245.50 crore, as on December 31, 2012.
