Land acquisition process for Kutch hybrid energy park expedited

The Gujarat government has paved the way for setting up of the ambitious solar and wind parks project in Kutch district by expediting the process of land acquisition for the hybrid energy park. About 60,000 hectares of land will be allocated for the project in one go. The solar and wind parks project in Kutch is expected to generate 41,500 MW power.

Reportedly, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) had been regularly seeking updates on the project of national importance for the past two years. The PMO has given the deadline of 2022 for completion of the project, which has been running more than two years behind schedule. The energy park is expected to attract investment of around Rs 1,350 billion.
