Delhi government urges MoP to allow it to retain 728 MW from Dadri II plant

The Delhi government has written to the Ministry of Power (MoP) for allowing it to retain 728 MW of electricity from NTPC Limited’s Dadri-II plant.

Without Dadri-II, demand-supply deficit will increase, risking outages in Delhi, the letter noted. Notably, through a letter dated July 6, 2015, Delhi had surrendered power from 11 central generating stations, including Dadri stage-II, with immediate effect and to reallocate it to other needy states, which the MoP, in March 2022, reallocated to Haryana. Delhi’s power demand has witnessed an unprecedented rise – from 5,846 MW in 2015 to expected power demand of 8,200 MW in 2022.
