Right of Way Challenge in Construction of Transmission lines and its Mitigation in India

India is developing green energy corridors for the evacuation of renewable energy from generation point to the load centres by creating intra-state and inter-state transmission infrastructure through regulatory tariff mechanism as well as tariff-based competitive bidding routes. Land acquisition and getting right of way (ROW) are becoming the biggest hurdles in constructing the transmission infrastructure in time due to rapid urbanisation and litigation issues. This paper aims to give information about the ROW and how it is a significant challenge for transmission utilities/ companies in the construction and operation and maintenance phase and the mitigation measures.
