Delhi government requests central government to shut all 11 NCR thermal plants

Delhi government has written to the centre requesting to shut all 11 thermal power plants operating in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab in view of the deteriorating air quality in the capital.

The Delhi government had closed the Indraparastha power plant in 2009, Rajghat plant in 2015 and Badarpur in 2018. According to the state government, Delhi has alternative sources to generate power and there is no lack of it even during peak hours so closing these thermal plants will not lead to reduction of power supply.
