Govt aims to add 66 gw coal-based power capacity in 5 yrs

During the 12th five-year plan period (2012-17), union power ministry aims to add 66,230-mw of coal-based power capacity.

This is part of the total 88,537-mw power capacity that the ministry aims to set up during the plan period. The 88,537-mw target, if achieved, would be about 54 percent more than the 11th five year plan achievement of about 62,000-mw capacity.

The 88,537-mw target also comprise 9,897-mw of hydro capacity besides some gas and lignite based power stations, but excludes 5,300-mw proposed nuclear capacity, Union power minister Veerappa Moily said at the Economic Editors' Conference.

Moily said the government has proposed to continue the rural electrification programme in the 12th plan to cover remaining villages and has asked for a budgetary allocation of Rs 49,730 crore for the 12th plan.
