MNRE extends commissioning date of renewable energy projects due to Covid-19

The Ministry of New and Renewable Resources (MNRE) has issued a memorandum to allow the time extension of two-and-a-half months for renewable energy projects with commissioning dates between April 1, 2021 and June 15, 2021.

MNRE has notified the changes that will prevent developers from being charged penalty for delaying commissioning of projects beyond the agreed timelines. In addition to that, the Ministry of Power has also granted an extension of three months to all interstate transmission projects under construction, with the scheduled commercial operation date falling after April 1, 2021, hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
