Finance Ministry looks at resurrecting Dabhol
The finance ministry has stepped in to rescue the Dabhol Power Project, which is struggling to collect Rs 400 crore dues from Maharashtra's power utility. The ministry says it would deduct the amount from central funds to be transferred to the state if the dispute is not resolved amicably. Dabhol Power Project owes Rs 8,500 crore to lenders and is struggling to keep afloat. It is controlled by Gail India and NTPC, which have 32.86 per cent apiece while Maharashtra government owns 17.41 per cent and its lenders together own 16.87 per cent.
